SYLKA™ declared winner of International Yacht and Aviation Awards

International Yacht and Aviation AwardsOne of the world’s leading producers of luxury rugs and carpets, SYLKA™, has won the flooring category at this year’s Design et al, International Yacht and Aviation Awards.

Held in the beautiful Italian city of Venice, the awards saw some of the leading lights in the world of yachting and aviation gather together to recognise the top designers, builders and suppliers to the two luxury industries.

Having submitted an impressive entry to the judges at this year’s awards, which featured their high-profile project on board the world’s largest luxury trimaran, MY Galaxy of Happiness, SYLKA™ went on to win a public vote.

Other competitors at this year’s event included private jet designers Boeing and Gulfstream, as well as a host of other big names in the world of yacht and aviation design.

Steve Farrell, Founder and Managing Director of SYLKA™, said: “We are absolutely delighted with our latest win at this year’s International Yacht and Aviation Awards.

“Over the last few years our influence in this market has grown significantly and it is now an important part of our business.

“Our project on the Galaxy of Happiness was unique and I am glad that the judges and those that voted were able to appreciate the work that our team and the designer, Marek Olko of O&O European Design, had put in.”

MY Galaxy of Happiness is one of a number of yacht projects that SYLKA’s specialist marine team has worked on this year.

Its team have been travelling across Europe, and in particular the Mediterranean, ahead of the main yachting season, ensuring clients enjoy some of the highest levels of refinement and durability to be found in marine flooring.

“SYLKA™ Marine continues to go from strength-to-strength with our work on display at yacht shows and marinas around the world,” said Steve.

“To think that this whole business was just a concept six years ago is amazing and a testament to the hard work and dedication put in by our team to achieve the outstanding results our clients enjoy today”

Headquartered in London, with locations in the South of France and Palma Mallorca, SYLKA™ not only regularly works with the world’s leading boat designers and builders, but has also completed projects for top retailers, such as Harrods, and corporate and residential projects across the capital.
