Adam D. Tihany of Tihany Design has been appointed creative director for luxury cruise company Cunard’s upcoming new ship. He will oversee the interior design of the unnamed ship, which joins the fleet in 2022.

Tihany is known for his work on luxury and iconic hotels and restaurants, including The Beverly Hills Hotel, Belmond Hotel Cipriani and The Oberoi New Delhi. He has created signature restaurant interiors for culinary celebrities such as Thomas Keller and Heston Blumenthal. Tihany and team are at work creating the ship’s dining areas.

“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 says.

The ship will be the first new-build for the company in 12 years and its 249th to sail under the Cunard flag.
