Sanlorenzo SP110 wins prestigious design award

Sanlorenzo’s SP110 model has won the prestigious Compasso d’Oro 2024 design award during a ceremony at the at the ADI Design Museum in Milan.

The international jury for the global design award praised the SP110 for its exceptional combination of Made in Italy design, high performance, and focus on sustainability – distinctive traits of the Italian Sanlorenzo shipyard.

Established by Gio Ponti in 1954, the Compasso d’Oro celebrates virtuous projects that combine quality, innovation, and cultural impact – not just the most popular or most visually appealing designs. Extremely selective, the Compasso d’Oro has only awarded just over 370 acknowledgements in its 70-year history, underscoring the prestigious nature of the accolade.

Launched at the 2022 Cannes Yachting Festival, the revolutionary SP110 highlights Sanlorenzo’s effortless ability to blend tradition and innovation, offering yachts that meet the highest standards of design and technology while addressing the growing sustainability demands in the nautical sector.

The extraordinary balance of design, sustainability, and performance visible in this model results from collaboration of high-profile experts and creatives: Bernardo Zuccon for exterior design, Tilli Antonelli for product development, Marco Arnaboldi for the hull, and Piero Lissoni for the interiors.

The first of the ‘Smart Performance’ range, the SP110 can offer high performance with maximum energy efficiency owing to the use of fractional propulsion, composed of three engines. The energy recovery system also includes highly-efficient solar panels and lithium batteries, enabling hotellerie functions to be powered without the use of generators.

The exterior design, curated by Zuccon International Project, features aerodynamic shapes and a distinctive style. The interiors, designed by Piero Lissoni, follow elegant minimalism, using lightweight materials such as lava stone, and optimise the ample onboard spaces, designed to promote both conviviality and privacy, with innovative solutions such as the expanded sun deck and the well-equipped bow dinette.

It is due to these cutting-edge features that the international jury, decided to award the Compasso d’Oro to the hull, following a two year scientific selection process which involved a permanent multidisciplinary observatory of about 150 experts.

The SP110 is more than just a boat as it “interprets the idea of a floating home through new proportions, a new relationship between transparent and opaque surfaces, and new living solutions. A boat that renews the production process in a strategic sector, through careful research of constructive and usage sustainability factors.”

The Sanlorenzo SP110 will be on display at the ADI Design Museum From 20 June to 15 September 2024.
