Miminat’s First Superyacht Concept Brings High Architecture to the Sea

Miminat is diving into the marine industry.

The London-based studio, which was founded by Nigerian artist and designer Miminat Shodeinde in 2015, just unveiled its first superyacht concept. Christened simply K, the 131-footer is rooted in Japanese aesthetics and showcases the striking architectural elements for which Miminat is renowned.

“I was very much inspired by Japanese design principles when designing the K yacht which felt like a natural reference point as I looked to envision a ‘floating sanctuary’ characterized by clean lines, thoughtful wabi-sabi inspired materials, and a serene color palette which evokes a feeling of quiet sophistication,” Shodeinde told Robb Report via email.

Having worked on a myriad of residential and hospitality projects over the past few years, Miminat is adept at creating elegant interiors with contemporary decor, sculptural furniture, and statement lighting. K features all of the above and a sleek, stylish exterior. In contrast to the Japanese design influence, the vessel will reportedly display the finest Italian craftsmanship. As the studio puts it, K is “not only a vessel for art, but a masterpiece in and of itself.”

With an interior volume of approximately 300 GT, K offers a spacious interior with five cabins. The owner’s suite is positioned on the main deck, while a VIP and three doubles sit on the lower deck. The crew quarters are also located on the lower deck. Back on the main deck lies a salon with a Japanese-inspired lounge, a bar, and a dining area with a 10-seater table. A spiral staircase leads to a spacious upper deck with a helm and alfresco dining area.

K also offers luxurious hangouts forward and aft. The two-level aft deck centers around a singular infinity pool that waterfalls from one level to the next, while the bow is equipped with a plush lounge and firepit.

Miminat says “various engine options” will give K a maximum speed of 25 knots and a cruising speed of 16 knots. It is hard to imagine the yacht will be overly practical in tumultuous waters—especially given her scant hardtop, hull cutouts, and exposed aft deck—but, hey, at least she’ll look pretty.
