Designer description Hot Lab

The history of the brand

Hot Lab Studio began its history in Milan in 2004 with the partnership of three talented designers - Michele Dragoni, Enrico Lumini and Antonio Romano.

Drawing on past experience in automotive, industrial and interior design, the team has been offering outstanding solutions from day one. It took the firm less than 10 years to gain worldwide recognition.


The studio uses time-tested technology and modern working methods. Each design of the yacht is first drawn by hand and then translated into 3D on the computer. The team also believes that a comprehensive approach, from sketching to shipyard support and delivery to the customer, is the key to quality design.

Speciality .

The rhinestone company has decided on the main direction and develops exteriors and interiors for superyachts.
