It was Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, the eminently quotable French aristocrat, writer, poet and pioneering aviator, who said, ‘a designer knows he has achieved perfection not when there is nothing left to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.’ Paraphrased more prosaically as “less is more,” his words of wisdom are sometimes overlooked in the superyacht world, where opulence is easily mistaken for luxury—an error Dragana Maznic, the interior designer of 154-foot (47-meter) Entourage, was determined to avoid.
Update May 18 2015: Entourage won at the International Yacht and Aviation Awards in the category “Interior Design Awards – Power Yacht”. The exterior of Entourage was styled by Luca Dini in collaboration with Admiral Centro Stile. The interior design came from the boards of Dragana Maznic. Entourage accommodates 12 guests in 5 cabins (with owner’s suite).

Yonge and Rich Condo Tower Toronto, Urban Toronto, Bold Design Aims to Attract End-User Buyers at Yonge+Rich:
Yonge and Rich Condo Tower Toronto, The Toronto Sun, Condo at ‘Yonge and Rich’ appeals to the ‘young and rich: "What's in a name? Plenty, when it's as provocative as 'Yonge + Rich.' That's the moniker of a new condo project in downtown Toronto that's aiming to raise the bar exponentially for the city's increasingly savvy buyers, says Dragana Maznic, design director for developer Great Gulf. Yonge + Rich is a deliberate double entendre, she explains. "Obviously, it refers to our location at Yonge and Richmond streets. But the greater connotation is young at heart whatever your age, plus enjoying an enriched life, not necessarily in a monetary sense."
