A new cruise industry first


We have launched a new innovation in the passenger shipping industry with our Virtual Balcony for Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines.

The Virtual Balcony, which features on the company’s latest ship, Quantum of the Seas, solves the age old problem that inside staterooms have no windows or balconies, when every passenger wants a cabin with a view. The Virtual Balcony solves this by giving you real time views from the ship, with the advantage that you can choose whichever direction you look out to. The industry response has been very positive, with the leading media commentator, Cruise Critic, stating ‘the virtual balcony is more than just a novelty; it truly enhances the interior cabin experience’.

Luxurious Aircraft Interiors for Qatar Airways A380


Over the last few years, we’ve worked closely with Qatar Airways to design the premium aircraft interiors for their new A380.

The Qatar experience across the First Class Cabin and Premium Lounge is one of refined luxury. Rich, warm textures and finishes are infused with subtle lighting. Traditional Arabic patterns are modernised to create elegant features with intricate detail, imbuing the environment with bespoke luxury.

The understated opulence is set by the unique ceiling features, which provide a warmth and level of grandeur unexpected on an aircraft. Intricate patterns, details and lighting infuse every part of the design.

The aircraft is flying on the London to Doha route since October this year.
