After having worked for eleven years for top UK yacht design companies and 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 to not be drawn to the latest trends within yachting interiors, as he strives to be different from his competitors. His source of inspiration is all things Asian, especially Japanese. He discovers 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 Hans Wegner, due to the clean lines and natural materials used. By fusing all his inspirations, he has been able to fuse and develop a different approach to design, by creating a calm interior and the use of integrated planting indoors. It adds a sense of life and softness to the space.
Together with Imperial, Berryman designed the charming ARKLEY (60m), remarkable Project 783 (73.50m), the speedy support vessel 6.7.11(67m) and most recently, the marvelous FLYING FOX (136m) with its beautiful contemporary and light interior, a signature of Mark Berryman Design.
