Having chosen to study architecture and urbanism, François Zuretti has said that he was mainly attracted to the social and political meanings behind these arts. François began his career with Triad Condas, a Paris-based Lebanese company specialising in the architecture of Middle Eastern palaces. He went on to work under the King of Morocco, being responsible for the interior design of the Royal residences and parliaments. François developed a unique sense of design and aesthetic, which has helped him become one of the most sought-after designers in the world.
He was introduced to the superyacht world by George Nicholson, and since then has designed some of the most famous yacht projects. He is an expert at translating a client’s dream into a special design concept, then into reality. With the client always in mind, he is able to blend functionality and design for comfortable on-board living. Together, Imperial and François delivered one of the most detailed masterpieces: AMADEA (106.10m). The interior design is a testament to the designer’s perfectionism, attention to detail and vision.
