TIS Yacht, Monaco

At the Monaco Yacht Show 2019 one of the most notable yachts on display was TIS. Not only was it the largest superyacht at the show, it also won the MYS Interior Design Award. The luxury yacht was built by Lürssen and the palatial classical interiors were done by Winch Design. Preciosa Lighting was thrilled to provide 12 chandeliers and six wall sconces for the elegant interiors.

TIS’ design was inspired by iconic hotels and residences around the world. Winch Design tasked the Preciosa maritime team with coming up with lighting reminiscent of the French Louis XVI style but also suitable for a yacht. Ceiling lights from Preciosa can be found in the Main Deck Saloon, Owner’s Deck Saloon, Formal Dining Room and Formal Office. These have a similar floral design with a colour scheme of light copper gold and white. The leaves are hand-blown crystal with optical décor and glass chips.

In the Formal Dining Room there are six complementary wall sconces in light copper gold with hand-blown crystal petals. Other wall sconces can be found on the Lower Deck, the Bridge Deck Spa and inside the lift. The design of each of these is slightly different, but all include hand-blown Bohemian crystal and have gone through our rigorous 4-step maritime safety test.

One of the biggest challenges with this project was finding a solution to fix the leaves to the body of the light. In the end, our specialists developed a special fixing for them and for additional safety, special fixing wire was added. Vibration testing was done throughout the process and on the finished lighting before it left the factory.

This luxurious superyacht has already been honoured for its interiors, and we were honoured to receive appreciation from the Winch Design team who thanked us “for your hard work and commitment to this project. It was a huge challenge and achievement for everyone involved and the end result looked fantastic! We greatly appreciate your diligence in working to the exacting standards required for this level of project. We very much look forward to working with you all again on future projects.”
