«It would be presumptuous to say that Tuxedos are works of art. We do not have this ambition, even though every creation produced in our yard is a unique work.
This is precisely why we have chosen to continue building aluminium boats. Ours is an example of high craftsmanship in which man’s manual skill is put at the service of a tangible purpose: to have a means of getting around at sea – or for any other purpose one wishes to interpret the boat as an object. And precisely to emphasize and make our work and the Tuxedos even more unique, we decided to develop this process together with the BIANCHIZARDIN gallery, in which we found a partner as stimulating as it is ready to grasp our nature».
«There is a strong parallelism between art and boats. In both cases, the visual impact is fundamental, an emotional attraction that cannot be ignored.
Behind it there is a whole process of creation and preparation that goes beyond aesthetics.
And even more often it is the same process that brings us closer to what we are observing, or even experiencing, making us appreciate new and deeper aspects. And in the case of a unique item like a Tuxedo, this parallelism is even deeper».
Thanks to our collaboration with artists Paolo Treni, Gianluca Patti and Alan Borguet, each Tuxedo can become a unique work of art, which will be an expression of both you and their
The artists, each with their own distinctive style, reproduced their work on the hulls of the Tuxedo yachts to convey what the founder of futurism Tommaso Marinetti called ‘the elastic but solid lightness of aluminium’.
In fact, aluminium has a different value from other construction materials, both in terms of sustainability and processing methods, characterized by high quality workmanship, all of which makes each yacht unique.
After all, yachts have always been home to prestigious works of art. TUXEDO YACHTING HOUSE and BIANCHIZARDIN go a step further, choosing to make the yacht itself a work of art
through the work of young talent. The yacht thus becomes a canvas, or perhaps a sculpture that artists paint or shape to materialize their research and creative process.
Paolo Treni (Lake Garda, 1981) is an artist who works extensively on spatial design, from the Plexiglass sculptures displayed on the Portofino sea to the aluminium of a yacht that becomes a work to be experienced directly at sea, to “create simulacra in perpetual relationship with light”.
His interpretation of Tuxedo aims at revealing the cosmic suggestions explored by the brand-new James Webb telescope, highlighting the dreamlike connections between the abysses of the sea and deep sidereal space. In this way, gravitational waves agitate the hull, sometimes radiating it like cosmic rays, at other times evoking the waves of the sea refracting and breaking in the thousand reflections of the water.
Gianluca Patti (Monza, 1977) bases his research on the study of colour and matter and their influence on our lives, on the vibration they transmit.
“For Tuxedo, I chose to interpret their story by imagining a new concept of a boat that can come to life through art and design”.
Alan Borguet (Milan, 1988), a young and multifaceted artist, started with street art, then moved from painting to sculpture, from an art of signs to the creation of works in which the material used, such as wood or marble, is recycled, with the aim of conveying a concept linked to a single gesture. He interprets the hull of the Tuxedo as a large canvas, as the surface of a sculpture on which to work.
He elaborates the concept of street art and brings it back to the sea, where his “sign” is transformed into energy. The energy that is part of existence itself and that
comes from the meeting of different materials: aluminium and the sea.
