Architect Yacht Designer
Gian Paolo Nari was born in Viareggio and grew up along the western coast of Tuscany, Italy, which instilled in him an early love for boating and respect for the sea. He earned his Master's Degree in Architecture and Design from "Florence University of the Arts" in Florence, Italy, and subsequently began working in the marine industry.
As the head designer for an Italian engineering company from 2003 to 2008, he collaborated with numerous renowned shipyards and designers such as "Fincantieri Yachts" and "Benetti Yachts". Additionally, he expanded his knowledge of yachting and yacht builders by working as a freelance reporter from 2005 to 2010 for prestigious yachting magazines, including "Yachts Italia", "Yachts Emirates", and "Yachts Russia" published by the "Luxmedia Group".
In late 2008, he launched his own personal brand, continuing his work in architecture and design with a focus on interior and exterior styling and layout of luxury yachts and residential spaces. He has worked and is currently working for renowned companies such as the Italian "Rossinavi" and he managed several refit works with the French firm "CompositeWorks".
"I believes that every project reflects the personal understanding of the existing reality and the interpretation of what we desire for the future. The design product is an harmonious blend of creativity, perceptual experiences, and technical knowledge, aimed at transforming the imaginative representation of the mind into a feasible idea". Thanks to a great passion for design and creativity, Gian Paolo offers a fresh and stylish approach to modern yacht design, from small pleasure crafts to large and luxurious world-traveling yachts.
