Our unique collaboration with Scott Cole of Ardeo Design to design lighting for the Ardeo yacht project Lacey Kay has received well-deserved accolades with recent award recognition. The Lacey Kay is a 96’ foot New Nordhavn Super Yacht, based out of the Caribbean. Ardeo Design was commissioned to work on the interior design of the new yacht, and ADG Lighting was the perfect choice to partner with them on the project. The Lacey Kay project was nominated for several awards:
Boat International Design & Innovation Awards 2018 recognized the Lacey Kay as a finalist for 2018. Previously known as the ShowBoats Design Awards, the refreshed awards program acknowledges not only the naval architecture and styling, but also design aspects that represent innovation and engineering amid the changing demands of owners and the increased product portfolio of technology.
The International Yacht & Aviation Awards are in their 8th year and are the only design-focused awards for the industry. The Lacey Kay was a 2017 winner. There are other events which are, of course, are similar in nature, but none that have come about with the sole intention on focusing on the essential design elements of both the yacht and aviation sectors.
International Superyacht Society Awards recognized the Lacey Kay as a finalist in 2017. It is the global association for the superyacht industry.
ADG Lighting was challenged to bring the client’s vision to reality. The owner of the Lacey Kay had a vision of walnut wood, leather and fabric on the interiors with accents of polished stainless steel. The creative offerings from ADG Lighting included a chrome shade wall sconce and a round drum chandelier. Both offerings precisely created the vision of the client and Ardeo Design. The final design concept surpassed the owner’s expectation and vision for a design that featured natural and metallic elements. The partnership was the perfect opportunity for ADG Lighting to feature their creative collaboration approach to design. The Lacey Kay was delivered to the owner in early 2016.
