The interior of the new headquarters, designed by Foster + Partners and inaugurated in 2014, includes a dining room adjacent to the restaurant, which can be used for meetings and members' private dinners. The structure and furnishings of the dining room are entirely made by Promemoria.
The precious paneling made from pear wood with bronze details has soft lines inspired by the boat, and covers the side walls. It also supports the original whale tail-shaped shelves which are made from the same wood.
The imposing door to the dining room is upholstered in leather, and at each of the two sides, a cupboard is hidden behind bronze netting. Above the door is a bronze testament to the history of the Club, the logo of the Admiral Tuiga.
The fishbone inlay of the center table, which is almost five meters long and made from mahogany, was inspired by the deck of the Tuiga: a bespoke creation made solely for this project.
The seating around the table are the Roka and Moka chairs, completely upholstered in leather with hammered bronze armrests, a creation of Romeo Sozzi which has already become one of the Italian company’s best sellers.
