At this year’s Sea Trade Global in Miami (April 8-11), our very own Senior Designer Ayesha Khan will be moderating a panel on cruise ship design called, ‘Cruise Ship Design: Veterans or Virgins?’ The panel discussion will answer such questions as: What are the pluses and challenges of working with cruise ship design novices versus cruise ship design veterans? Does the prestige of having a renowned design name outweigh the virtues of having a designer well versed in the multifaceted particularities of shipbuilding? How do those who are unfamiliar with maritime design feel about the steep learning curve? And what is the client’s perspective? The panel will take place on that Wednesday at 10:30AM at the Cruising Innovations Theater.
On March 7th, The New York Times examined the growing trend in designing gender neutral children’s rooms. Our design for the playroom at the luxury residential tower, One West End,was featured. The article also included a quote from architect Jeffrey Beers, founder and President, that said, “we focused on design elements and themes such a modernism, youth and playfulness. I personally find the overall look joyful.”
