the design seeks to combine elegance and efficiency, allowing sea explorers to feel as free as possible in the middle of the ocean. quitllet describes himself as a ‘disoñador,’ a spanish contraction of designer and dreamer. his inventions are gravity-free, with aesthetics summarized in a combination of digital precision and flowing curves. quitllet was awarded the ‘designer of the year’ title at the 2016 maison&objet design fair in paris.
