Fiorella by Hyun-Seok Kim is a unique floating surface that resembles a gigantic lotus flower. Although it can be described as a blend between a cabin and a yacht, it is more like a maneuverable picnic spot than anything else.

Thanks to its whimsical design, Fiorella by Hyun-Seok Kim opens up like a beautiful blossoming flower. Its 'petals' act as walls that fold down to provide a scenic, panoramic view. In the center, it boasts a soft sofa bed while the outer portion conveniently acts as a water level deck. It is also equipped with a water jet engine and eight nozzles that control its direction and provide some stabilization when resting in one spot while added acceleration sensors adjust the nozzles and 16 petals to control its balance perfectly.
