George Lucian, Monaco-based designer-artist famous for his series of extraordinary superyacht concepts, and Hannah Hombergen, an established interior superyacht designer, have joined forces to propose a concept of Brancusi-shape-inspired tower in Manhattan. Not limited by convention, The Vertical Yacht would push the boundaries of architecture and design even further and would redefine Manhattan’s skyline.
George Lucian created the striking exterior of the 60-story residential tower. The architectural design of The Vertical Yacht is inspired by one of the sculptures of Constantin Brancusi. The French-Romanian artist is considered to be one of the most influential sculptors of the 20th century. The Museum of Modern Art in New York, which is just a couple of streets away from the envisioned location of The Vertical Yacht, has a permanent gallery dedicated to the sculptures of Constantin Brancusi.
The building’s name is fairly self-explanatory. Its profile and shape are reminiscent of the yacht and its interiors feature nautical influences, creating a special and ultra-luxurious atmosphere and lifestyle for its residents. Hannah Hombergen designed the interiors of the apartments that would offer a 360-degree view over the skyline of New York, including Central Park.
