Philippe Starck designed the first port at Port Adriano and is present for the today’s official opening. One of the world’s best designers has been responsible for enlarging and refurbishing of the port.
Philippe Starck’s aim as designer of one the Balearic Isles’ largest marinas, Port Adriano, (with 404 moorings) is “to place the human and the sea in the centre of the project, which includes overall town planning, architectural design and artistic direction of public spaces as well as special creations such as mooring poles”.
Philippe Starck was commissioned on the basis that his designs “offer the talent, sobriety and beauty that Port Adriano wants for its clients”. He was responsible for the design of the new commercial area and the decoration of the communal areas.
Built in 1992, Port Adriano has fully re-opened with Starck’s new design that opened this spring 2012. Philippe Starck, the Frenchman who is among the world’s leading designers, was in charge of the architecture of the new shopping area and the decoration of the port’s communal spaces.
Why not check out the new port this weekend? The yachting trade show Mallorca Superyacht Days will be there with open days from 28th – 30th April 2012.
