Holland America Place Interior Design Contracts
The company's new Pinnacle-class cruise ship to feature interiors designed by two leading firms.
Holland America Line has selected two design companies 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 Eurodam and Nieuw Amsterdam, in designing the ship's public rooms.
Adam D. Tihany is regarded as one of the world's preeminent hospitality designers. After attending the Politecnico di Milano School of Architecture and Urban Planning, Tihany apprenticed at design firms in Italy.

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, including the King David Hotel in Jerusalem, Beverly Hills Hotel in Los Angeles and One & Only Cape Town.
