Seabourn unveils design details of Seabourn Venture

First photos showcase partnership between Seabourn and Tihany Design

Seabourn, the ultra-luxury ocean and expedition line, has ushered in a new era of expedition travel with the launch of Seabourn Venture, its first ultra-luxury purpose-built expedition ship that embarked on its first voyage 27 July 2022, to Norway and the Arctic. While natural beauty, wildlife, and culture are at the heart of every expedition itinerary, guests will also find plenty to admire on board thanks to the ship’s stunning design by Seabourn partner and iconic hospitality interiors atelier, Tihany Design.

Led by Founder Adam D. Tihany and Managing Partner Alessia Genova, the boutique design atelier has crafted hotel and dining interiors for some of the most iconic and luxurious hospitality brands around the globe. Seabourn Venture is the third vessel that Tihany Design has fashioned for Seabourn from its New York-based studio.

Their vision was to give purposeful, global exploration ‘a spectacular allure,’ capturing the romanticism of early explorers while lifting the hearts of Seabourn guests and its dedicated crew who works with tremendous pride throughout the journey.

“We are so proud and delighted with Seabourn Venture and the creative energy and input of Tihany Design,” said Josh Leibowitz, Seabourn President.

“We asked them to create and present designs that would be world-class and to set a new standard for expedition travel. Adam and Alessia have brought forward a vision of creating luxurious interior spaces that reflect the beauty of nature inside and outside the ship by using natural materials, colours and textures.”

“They have established Seabourn Venture as the world’s most beautiful and luxurious expedition ship ever created.”

Gathering Spaces Inspired by the Spirit of Adventure

Tihany Design shaped a dozen public spaces throughout Seabourn Venture, each with a narrative of its own; some areas will be familiar to guests who have previously travelled with Seabourn, while others are brand new and contribute to the expeditionary ambiance and spirit of the ship.

Conceived with artistry and innovation, the interiors create an ambiance of relaxed sophistication and elegance, yet emanate the potent allure of the natural world. Hence, materials are intentionally tactile and elemental to evoke ruggedness, a spirit of adventure and the thrill of discovery, while artfully complementing Seabourn’s signature luxury and comfort. So, too, does the vessel’s bespoke custom furniture line, developed by Tihany Product Design, which sets a new precedent for the next generation of design in the expedition cruise market.

  • At the heart of Seabourn Venture is the Expedition Lounge, where guests convene before and after off-ship expeditions. Located on Deck 4, it is a warm, comfortable, and engaging setting with two fireplaces producing lifelike water vapor “flames,” a glass partition etched with a vintage map, and a full bar creating a cozy and enchanting environment for swapping stories of the day’s adventures and anticipating more to come. Custom furniture crafted from wood, wool, leather, and fur echoes the quality and craftsmanship of tools and instruments employed by early explorers.

  • Right next door, the Discovery Center is the classroom of the ship, sized for every guest to be enriched with natural history and cultural programming at once. As warm and inviting as its neighbour, the design is inspired by the compelling landscape of Antarctica, incorporating a natural color palette and organic shapes of topography maps against the elegant curves of plush custom seating set before a large screen for immersive lectures and video experiences. The textured liquid metal wall covering is unique.

  • A focal point on all Seabourn vessels, the Atrium connects all guest-area decks via an elegant staircase. On Seabourn Venture, the sky-lit space decked out in wood and metal finishes has details including rhythmically placed rope work and a topography-inspired liquid metal wall treatment. The diamond-shape floor pattern emphasizes a captivating artwork created at the base of the space, as well as a suspended light fixture, both of which emulate traditional instruments used to measure wind.
  • Also known as ‘the Mud Room,’ the Landing Zone is the ship’s utility space where guests change, clean, and store boots and gear following excursions. Reimagined by Tihany Design as a comfortable setting of sleek, modern design, the Zone combines a durable material palette of floor tile, wood, and metal details with rivet

accents to evoke the characteristics of luggage as well as the orange-tinged uniforms of the crew.

  • A communal space housing the ship’s Concierge, Guest Services team members, and a charming café, Seabourn Square offers intimate gathering spaces decked out with outward facing, circular concierge desks, wood-backed scalloped banquettes, and lounge chairs by Tihany Design. Riveted leather wall panels echo the handcrafted details of the furniture, and an overlapping circular patterned ceiling recalls the symmetrical composition of a compass. Extending to the aft deck guests can grab a seat and or utilise one of the fixed Swarovski telescopes to soak up the views.
