From a luxury yacht and locally designed shelving systems to impasto paintings and brightly coloured murals, these are VISI’s top picks of the week.

1. Norm X MS Yachtbau: Luxury Yacht by Norm Architects

Danish studio Norm Architects has completed its first yacht project. Bella, a luxurious 20-metre-long yacht, features minimalist interiors. A combination of dark wood and neutral hues gives the boat a more homely feel, the aim behind the initial design.
