A future sailboat by Furf Design Studio and designer Cesar Pieri
Speculate the future of personal watercraft innovations, collaboration between Furf Design Studio and designer Cesar Pieri unveil a new sailboat created to have minimal impact on nature, both environmentally and visually. Entitled ‘Second Sun’, the sailboat has a transparent hull in algaebased on biopolymer, while the rest of the iThe internal structure and the fabric are made with Plastic taken from the oceans.
