After having worked for eleven years for top UK yacht design companies, being involved in more than twenty-five projects and over ten land-based projects worldwide, Mark Berryman opened his own design agency, Mark Berryman Design, in 2007. With the constantly evolving charter market, his open-minded way of thinking has made him a pioneer within the industry.
Berryman tends not to be drawn to the latest trends within yachting interiors, as he strives to set himself apart from the competition. He is inspired by all things Asian, especially Japanese. He finds a great sense of calm in both interior and garden spaces in Japanese homes, that put you in a different head space. His love of Danish furniture, in particular the designs of Hans Wegner, derives from its clean lines and natural materials. By fusing all his inspirations, he has been able to develop a different approach to design, by creating a calm interior and using integrated planting indoors. This brings a sense of life and softness to the space.
Together with Imperial, Mark designed the charming ARKLEY (60m), the remarkable PROJECT 783 (73.50m), the speedy support vessel 6.7.11 (67m) and most recently, the marvellous FLYING FOX (136m) with its beautiful contemporary and light interior, a signature of Mark Berryman Design.
