My Moonsand Private Yacht, International

December 2, 2022

My Moonsand, with interior and exterior design by Bannenberg & Rowell, is a masterpiece of clean yet striking design. Lighting Design International created the lighting scheme for both the exterior and interior of the 55-metre yacht built by Lurssen, with Christian Haimes leading the team as Senior Designer. 

While a clean aesthetic was key, the yacht features a courageous use of colour and texture. It was key that high-quality lighting was used to allow the bold finishes to come to life, while not distracting from the elegant design of both the exterior and interior architecture. Through the use of custom mounting plates and shallow lighting slots, all deckhead was minimised and organised to reduce visual impact. 

Moonsand has been described as “truly bespoke” and this is certainly true for the lighting. A key feature of the boat is the beautiful ceiling light that sits within the salon and dining areas on the main deck. Featuring 38 stainless steel-backed hand-blown glass segments, the light by Preciosa continues the clean but highly decorative style of the boat. The almost translucent segments are lit with cool white light for a cloud-like effect against the pale blue ceiling, which provides a sense of movement and striking simplicity as you journey through the main deck.
