Toni Sokura is a student at the Lahti Institute of Design in Lahti, Finland and a designer with Unmonday, maker of high-end, ceramic, active Airplay speakers. Even though he specialized in consumer products, he and fellow student Aslak Siimes, recently won a design competition held by the Seatec International Exhibition, an annual Yacht Design and Technology conference in Carrara, Italy.
The two used KeyShot to create the images submitted as entries to the International Myda awards. Toni tells us the boat “was designed purely for fun, and within a week. We couldn’t have managed it without something as fast as KeyShot.”
The Myda awards are an annual, international competition for yacht designers. The exhibition and competition is in its 11th year and welcomes both established and young professionals to submit designs among three different categories: New Projects, Dream Boats and The boat on a human scale.
Toni and Aslak’s Aukea 32 submission was the winner of “The boat on a human scale” class, showing what judges said was a, “Commendable and personal layout of the space, with the accent on the living concept in the harbour rather than dynamism, the simple movement of the boat. Appreciation is expressed for the successful balance achieved between the volume of the stern and the prow by the horizontal element which includes the awning.”
They displayed the elements with style using KeyShot to work in materials and environment that created an eye-catching presentation for a small, quite cozy, home on the sea. It’s truly a beautiful design and we congratulate Toni and Aslak on the win.
