Boutique cruise ship and hospitality design firm Studio DADO has designed multiple public and private areas for Regent Seven Seas Cruises’ new luxury ship, Seven Seas Splendor, which will debut in February 2020.
Led by the company’s founding partners Yohandel Ruiz and Javier Calle and lead designer Scheherezade Marles, Studio DADO’s team will create several public spaces including the spa, Card Room, Constellation Theater, Connoisseur Club cigar lounge and Pacific Rim Pan-Asian speciality restaurant.
The team has also designed The Observation Lounge, which will evoke the feeling of an “enchanting English garden” with its light colour palette, decorative roses and peonies, a chandelier made from hundreds of hand-painted porcelain flowers, traditional English architectural mouldings and curved upholsteries. The room will also have specially commissioned art by German Studios, which will incorporate hand-painted English roses and flowers on glass screens that mimic the look of porcelain.
“These vibrant, functional and interactive Studio DADO-designed spaces are another example of how Seven Seas Splendor will set new benchmarks in her quest to perfect luxury,” said Jason Montague, president and CEO of Regent. “The company’s designers bring an eye for both bold architectural cues and the most whimsical of tiny details to create spaces that are pieces of art our guests will admire throughout their voyage.”
Studio DADO have also designed all the Penthouse Suites, Grand Suites and Superior Suites for the 750-passenger ship. The 55 sapphire-inspired Penthouse Suites will boast balconies; custom artwork; dining tables with a mother-of-pearl inset; bathrooms featuring Carrara marble and stone and custom-lit vanity mirrors; and walk-in closets with lined jewellery drawers and space for handbags. Meanwhile, the Grand Suites will have marble mosaics, rich woods, emerald green accent colours and unique furniture pieces based on haute couture fashion.
“Our suite designs welcome guests with an opulent and highly tailored environment which seamlessly blends comfort and luxury,” said Calle. “This distinctive design focuses on impeccable details, exquisite high-contrast materials and lush jewel-toned accents to create an unparalleled guest experience.”
