Holland America Line's New Pinnacle Class Ship To Feature Interiors Designed By Two Leading Firms

Holland America Line's New Pinnacle Class Ship To Feature Interiors Designed 
By Two Leading Firms 
SEATTLE, May 1, 2013 /CNW/ - Holland America Line has selected two leading 
firms to create the interior spaces of the line's new 99,000-ton ship that is 
slated for delivery in February 2016. The first in a new Pinnacle Class of 
vessel, the ship will showcase decors by designer Adam D. Tihany and designer 
and architect Bjorn Storbraaten. 
Tihany will join Storbraaten, who successfully worked with Holland America 
Line on ms Eurodam and ms Nieuw Amsterdam, in designing the ship's public 
rooms. The new ship will feature exciting new public areas and dining venues, 
as well as a stunning onboard ambiance created in partnership with these two 
leading firms. Several new concepts are under development that have never been 
seen before on a Holland America Line ship, and as they evolve more details 
will be revealed. 
"We are fortunate to bring together such distinguished professionals for our 
next-generation ship," said Richard Meadows, executive vice president, 
marketing, sales and guest programs for Holland America Line. "The ambience of 
a ship is an essential part of the cruise experience and we are confident that 
Adam, Bjorn and their teams of experienced designers and architects will 
strike the right balance between contemporary and traditional that is the 
hallmark of the interiors of Holland America Line ships." 
About Tihany Design 
Adam D. Tihany is regarded as one of the world's pre-eminent hospitality 
designers. After attending the Politecnico di Milano School of Architecture 
and Urban Planning, Tihany apprenticed at design firms in Italy. In 1978, he 
established his own multidisciplinary New York studio and in 1987 became 
co-owner of Remi restaurants. Tihany was a pioneering designer in 
collaborations with celebrity chefs, creating multiple signature restaurants 
for such well-known chefs as Wolfgang Puck, Thomas Keller, Daniel Boulud and 
Charlie Palmer. Tihany also created a collection of eight signature 
restaurants for the legendary Sirio Maccioni of Le Cirque. 
"My team is eager to work on this unique project and we're thrilled to be able 
to merge our vision and aesthetic with Holland America Line's distinct style," 
said Tihany. 
Over the last 30 years, Tihany Design has become a leader in creating 
luxurious and innovative interiors at some of the world's most iconic 
properties, such as the King David Hotel in Jerusalem, Beverly Hills Hotel in 
Los Angeles and One & Only Cape Town. In addition, there are numerous hotels 
showcasing signature venues by Tihany, including The Breakers, The Broadmoor 
and Hotel Cipriani in Venice to name a few. 
In 2011, Tihany was appointed art director of the Culinary Institute of 
America, taking the lead on contemporizing the Hyde Park campus.
