Costa Appoints Distinguished Design Team for Realization of New Ship Interiors Under Creative Director Adam D. Tihany
 
Genoa, 30 September ,2016–Costa Cruises has selected four leading design firms to create the interior spaces of the two new 180,000-ton ships that are scheduled to be delivered in 2019 and 2021. Jeffrey Beers International, Dordoni Architetti, Partner Ship Design and Rockwell Group were selected for the unique challenge of creating state-of-the-art interior design for a cruise ship.

The layout for the ships will reflect comments and suggestions from Costa Guests and will include a more efficient use of the ships’ spaces, creating an enhanced onboard experience.

We are fortunate to bring together such distinguished professionals for our next-generation ship,” said Neil Palomba, President of Costa Cruises. “Italy’s finest” concept represents the roots and the identity of Costa Cruises.  It deals with the best things that our Country has to offer:  passion, quality, hospitality and, of course, style. We think that we were able to create an unparalleled mix of different experiences mostly coming from an unconventional approach for the ship design. I am confident that our designers will be able to create a unique style for our new ships that will help us to offer our guests unforgettable and pleasant holiday experiences.”

Each of the chosen firms has a breadth of experience in the international hospitality design sector and is well-versed in design for projects like hotels, restaurants and public spaces. The team will have the objective of crafting an innovative new design concept that will build on the history and tradition of the brand with a bespoke realization of the ‘Italy’s Finest’ philosophy. Both ships will represent the best that Italy has to offer, a claim reinforced by the presence of an Italian footprint in the design team. As Creative Director, renowned designer Adam D. Tihany will oversee the development of the design and branding of the new ships. This unparalleled pool of talent will lead the brand to a new interior design vision and a cruise ship concept that has never been seen before.

“The theme ‘Italy’s Finest’ is an authentic celebration of Italian design, culture and spirit,” said Tihany. “The team of outstanding architects and designers we invited to be a part of this project bring a level of innovation and passion that will no doubt capture the essence of the new Costa brand.”

Hotel Essence

The first true luxury boutique hotel offering in Dubai, Four Seasons Hotel DIFC’s design demonstrates an elegant and refined environment, perfect for its distinguished guests.

“Four Seasons Hotel DIFC is nothing short of a custom tailored suit, designed to completely adhere to the needs of its clientele,” says Tihany. “It is very personal. We wanted the feeling of an inclusive exclusivity, without the ‘members only’ attitude.”

The hotel’s original photographic art series, commissioned by award-winning artist Bram Tihany, pays homage to the iconic architecture of Dubai while providing a window into the philosophy behind the hotel’s design. Far from the glittering palatial meeting places of the city’s past, the interiors of the Four Seasons DIFC capture the overall transformation of design in Dubai.

With venues like the glamorous 1950s-inspired 24-hour Firebird Diner by Michael Mina, also featuring art by Bram Tihany, and the eighth floor Luna Bar overlooking stunning views of the Burj Khalifa, the hotel is Dubai’s newest must-stay destination.

Portrait of the Artist, Hotel Management International
 
"We took that philosophy, combined with the excellence of the Four Seasons' operational strength, and designed a product that is modest in scale, but very rich in style," he says. "Years ago, a wonderful leather goods company from Italy called Bottega Beneta had the slogan, 'when youre own initials are enough,' and I think that sums up the quality of the project- something that doesn't scream anything, it just makes you feel comfortable, like a custom suit." 

Going into a project, Tihany takes steps to immerse himself in the environment in which it will breathe. For his newest field of work, cruise ship design, this has meant spending time on the waves and study the way guests consume the product...

An Intimate, Boutique-Scale Property Designed by Adam Tihany
 
For an international hotel group that focuses solely on luxury, it's surprising that Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts didn't have a presence in Dubai- a city with one of the highest concentrations of five-star hotels in the world- until recently. 

But, while others were battling it out to be the tallest, the largest or the most opulent, Four Seasons was quietly planning an arrival that would see two properties open within 14 months. 

First on the scene, Four Seasons Resort Dubai at Jumeirah Beach made its debut towards the end of 2014. With 11 restaurants and louges, two outdoor swimming pools, a spa, tennis courts, and high-end retail, the 237-key property is everything one would expect of a five-star resort. The latest addition - Four Seasons Hotel Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) - is a different offer entirely. With just 106 guestrooms it is one of the smallest properties in the portfolio and seeks to provide an intimately scaled contemporary oasis for business travellers.
