New Book Celebrates Designer Adam Tihany's Iconic Luxury Hotel and Restaurant Interiors

New Book Celebrates Designer Adam Tihany's Iconic Luxury Hotel and Restaurant Interiors

Born in Transylvania and raised in Israel, Adam Tihany has become one of the most important and best known interior architects and designers in America. This month Rizzoli is publishing a lavish volume dedicated to some of his most renowned luxury hotel and restaurant designs, including the Gatsby-esque HMF at Palm Beach’s legendary The Breakers.

Tihany: Iconic Hotels and Restaurant Interiors has over 200 color photographs of hotspots, like celebrity chef Thomas Keller’s Per Se in New York City, which just celebrated its 10th anniversary. His designs, which often have to be perfectly pitched to co-exist with historic architecture (like at The Breakers), have now outgrown America and can be seen at the Mandarin Hyde Park in London, One&Only in Cape Town, South Africa, and the Veranda in Kuwait — among many others.

Tihany’s best known stateside projects include Le Cirque, but he’s still underappreciated, it seems.

“For all the credit heaped on restaurant chefs these days, fairly little praise goes to restaurant designers,” Keller notes in his introduction to the book. “Call it an injustice of the modern age. Great restaurants, after all, aren’t just about great cooking. The best of them have distinctive aesthetics, vivid personalities that make themselves apparent not only in the composition of the menu but in every detail of the dining room. Deciding on those details is the work of the designer, and it isn’t easy. It calls for a trained eye, a creative mind, and a special gift for collaboration….What makes Adam extraordinary is his ability to translate a chef’s concept into a reality without having his own ego get in the way.”

The book will be available on Amazon starting March 18.


Cunard is proud to announce that world-renowned designer, Adam D Tihany has been appointed Creative Director

Widely regarded as one of the world’s most talented designers, Tihany has made his name creating beautiful spaces for luxurious and iconic hotels, restaurants and resorts across the globe, including The Beverly Hills Hotel, Belmond Hotel Cipriani and The Oberoi New Delhi.

“The name Cunard is obviously magical and I’m very excited to be involved in this project,” he says. “If you look at the history of Cunard, it has always been a forward-looking brand. It has a classic image but actually each ship has been innovative for its period. We want to continue this tradition and move the brand forward with the creation of an exciting and spectacularly beautiful new cruise liner.”

Work is now ongoing and Tihany promises plenty of surprises. “Guests can expect a much lighter, contemporary feel, but crucially it will still feel like a Cunard ship and Cunard’s loyal guests will feel very at home. The new ship will celebrate Cunard’s British heritage but with a whisper, not a shout. Everything a guest expects to see on a Cunard ship will be there, but in a different way to the other three.”

Tihany has led the way in restaurant design, creating signature restaurant interiors for such culinary stars as Thomas Keller and Heston Blumenthal. He and his expert team of designers are currently working on plans for the new ship’s dining areas and he confirms that Queens and Princess Grill restaurants will feature among the dining options.

Design work is well underway in preparation for construction at the Fincantieri shipyard in Italy. The ship, Cunard’s first new-build for 12 years will be the 249th vessel to sail under the Cunard flag and when she joins Queen Mary 2, Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth in the Cunard fleet, the luxury cruise brand will have four ships in service for the first time since 2000.

Simon Palethorpe, Senior Vice President, Cunard said: “We are immensely excited about Adam’s appointment. Cunard offers unrivalled luxury ocean experiences and to have such a renowned designer as the Creative Director for the new ship shows our commitment to providing our guests with a whole new experience. Adam is working with a great team and there are some stunning ideas and concepts in the making, but still with the unique Cunard luxury and distinctiveness that our guests know and love. We look forward to sharing more of our designs next year as they come to life.”
