Designer Adam D Tihany promises something different for new Cunard ship

The world-renowned designer Adam D Tihany has been appointed creative director of Cunard's as yet unnamed new ship which will be joining the Cunard fleet in 2022.

Widely regarded as one of the world’s most talented designers, Tihany will oversee the entire interior design process and is already promising plenty of surprises.

He has made his name creating beautiful spaces for luxurious and iconic hotels, restaurants and resorts across the globe, including The Beverly Hills Hotel, Belmond Hotel Cipriani and The Oberoi New Delhi.

“The name Cunard is obviously magical and I’m very excited to be involved in this project,” says Tihany.

“If you look at the history of Cunard, it has always been a forward-looking brand. It has a classic image but actually each ship has been innovative for its period. We want to continue this tradition and move the brand forward with the creation of an exciting and spectacularly beautiful new cruise liner.”

He adds: “Guests can expect a much lighter, contemporary feel, but crucially it will still feel like a Cunard ship and Cunard’s loyal guests will feel very at home. The new ship will celebrate Cunard’s British heritage but with a whisper, not a shout. Everything a guest expects to see on a Cunard ship will be there, but in a different way to the other three.”

Tihany has led the way in restaurant design, creating signature restaurant interiors for such culinary stars as Thomas Keller and Heston Blumenthal. He and his expert team of designers are currently working on plans for the new ship’s dining areas and he confirms that Queens and Princess Grill restaurants will feature among the dining options.

Design work is well underway in preparation for construction at the Fincantieri shipyard in Italy. The ship, Cunard’s first for 12 years, will be the 249th vessel to sail under the Cunard flag and when she joins Queen Mary 2, Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth in the Cunard fleet, the brand will have four ships in service for the first time since 2000.

Simon Palethorpe, Cunard’s senior vice president, said: “We are immensely excited about Adam’s appointment. To have such a renowned designer as the creative director for the new ship shows our commitment to providing our guests with a whole new experience.”
