Seabourn has contracted hospitality design icon Adam D. Tihany to create the indoor and outdoor guest areas of its two luxurious expedition newbuilds.

Tihany was the creative vision behind the Seabourn Encore and Seabourn Ovation interiors. He also designed interiors for The Grill by Thomas Keller restaurant on Seabourn Odyssey, Seabourn Sojourn and Seabourn Quest.

'Wonderful match for the brand'

'Adam’s creative and artistic talents have proven to be a wonderful match for the Seabourn brand and guests have praised his work on our two newest ships,' Seabourn president Rick Meadows said.

He added: 'We’ve spent many hours collaborating and Adam is creating an inspiring design concept that feels well-suited to the remote destinations expedition travelers want to visit while preserving the atmosphere of contemporary, relaxed luxury our guests have come to expect from Seabourn.'

Suites, public rooms, open decks, bespoke furniture

Tihany is tasked with developing a design vision for the entire vessel including multiple expedition spaces and lounges, all categories of guest suites, multiple dining venues, Spa & Wellness with Dr. Andrew Weil facilities, outdoor deck areas and the Seabourn Square multipurpose space. Tihany’s Product Design arm is creating a bespoke furniture collection for the expedition ship.

'We are thrilled to join Seabourn on this exciting next chapter of expedition cruising,' Tihany said. 'Drawing on the call of adventure and the spirit of daring exploration from across the ages, the new ship’s design will define ultra-luxury for the contemporary expedition traveler.'

Seabourn's expedition ships are being built by T. Mariotti and due to enter service in June 2021 and May 2022.
