global presentations, panels & educational forums



The world of interior design presents the opportunity to create spaces that heal and comfort, and part of that opportunity is looking at design from a scientific approach including the effects of sound and vibration on human health... especially on yachts. The article, "Sound Effects" in May's issue of Dockwalk focused on just that and Clear Yacht International had the chance to contribute to the discussion.

"According to Clear, noise-and vibration-reducing technology can be the key to a healthier, happier and safer vessel for owners and crew." Active and passive noise control systems create a quieter environment which have a direct impact on the immune, cardiovascular, endocrine and nervous systems. This directly reduces stress levels, increases productivity, and improves mental performance making for a much more enjoyable on-board experience for passengers and crew.

JClear Yacht is the only interior design firm in the yachting industry achieving accreditation in the WELL Building Standard, the world’s first evidence based system that places human health, well-being and performance at the center of design.  “We are also impassioned by Biomimicry, a scientific and aesthetic approach to innovation and beauty that seeks sustainable solutions by emulating nature’s time-tested patterns and strategies. All of these design principles begin with an understanding of how every choice we make as designers affect where we all live and play.”
