Swarovski crystals bring sparkle to Philmi Yacht, Interior designed by MELOT+TRILLO

Swarovski Surface Collection

Designer Sandrine Melot has created discreetly crystalline interiors for the stunning new super-luxe yacht, Philmi.

Since 1995, French-born Sandrine Melot — a partner in the architectural/design company MELOT+TRILLO — has built up a formidable reputation for interior design excellence. But it was only in 2006 that she accepted her first yacht project, which went on to win the World Superyacht Award in the Semi-Custom Motor Yacht Open Sport Cruiser division.

Commissioned to create a bespoke interior for the new Italian-built, 43-meter motoryacht called Philmi, it is the second project undertaken by MELOT+TRILLO for the same owner, and it perfectly reflects his discerning taste and exacting requirements. Sandrine Melot has used Swarovski’s Surface Collection to bring a light-reflective, luminescent glow to interior spaces. Developed in partnership with renowned naval architect Martin Francis, the Swarovski Surface Collection is a radically different range of treatments that has pushed the boundaries of crystal application.
