Living Lotus

This delicate-looking, floral inspired design by Hyun-Seok Kim at first looks like a sculptural floating egg, but when the petal-like sides come down the interior is revealed as a cabin fit with an underwater panoramic view, convertible sofa-bed, and water level deck. The Fiorella isn’t so much a yacht as it is a maneuverable floating picnic spot, but it is just as entertaining!

Fiorella has a water jet engine and eight nozzles are attached with water jet control valves. These eight nozzles control direction as well as act as a stabilizing system. Acceleration sensors adjust the nozzles and 16 petals in tandem to control its balance perfectly.

Designer: Hyun-Seok Kim
