Regent Seven Seas Cruises Selects Studio DADO to Design Key Spaces Onboard the Ship that Perfects Luxury
Coral Gables, FL (April 2, 2019) – Regent Seven Seas Cruises has selected Miami-based boutique cruise ship and hospitality design firm Studio DADO to create key public and private areas of its newest luxury ship, Seven Seas Splendor. The studio is designing the ship’s observation lounge, spa, card room, constellation theatre, Connoisseur Club cigar lounge, Pacific Rim Pan-Asian speciality restaurant, and all 55 Penthouse Suites, Grand Suites and Superior Suites onboard. The highly anticipated all-suite, all-balcony ship debuts in February 2020.
Led by DADO founding partners Yohandel Ruiz and Javier Calle and lead designer Scheherezade Marles, designs will elevate the standard for modern-day elegance, as each space aims to create an atmosphere of uncompromised luxury as unique as the many guests who sail onboard.
“It is no small feat to create both public and private living spaces for a ship that aspires to perfect luxury,” notes Ruiz. “We are focusing on all the intricate details that will take each of the 750 guests on a journey while onboard for an indulgent and transformative personal experience.”
DADO Design Highlights Aboard Seven Seas Splendor
The Observation Lounge incorporates a light and airy colour palette to create a restful daytime space that evokes the feeling of an enchanting English garden, complete with peonies, roses, traditional English architectural moulding, and curved, lush upholsteries that gracefully echo the fluid forms of flower petals. Specially commissioned
art by Gorman Studios incorporates hand-painted English roses and flowers on glass screens to mimic the look of porcelain. The highlight of the room includes a whimsical chandelier made from hundreds of hand-painted porcelain flowers.
The Grand Suite, one of the most glamorous spaces onboard, features marble mosaics, rich woods, brilliant emerald green accent colours and unique furniture pieces based on haute couture fashion.
Elegance flows through the 55 sapphire-inspired Penthouse Suites from the subtle mother-of-pearl inset in the dining table, to the expanse of the breeze-swept balcony. Each suite is adorned with custom artwork, bathrooms featuring Carrara marble and stone and custom-lit vanity mirrors, and even expansive, walk-in closets that include lined jewellery drawers and custom space built for designer handbags.
“Our suite designs welcome guests with an opulent and highly tailored environment which seamlessly blends comfort and luxury,” adds Calle. “This distinctive design focuses on impeccable details, exquisite high-contrast materials and lush jewel-toned accents to create an unparalleled guest experience.”
“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 chief executive officer of Regent Seven Seas Cruises. “Their 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.”
