Designing the “WOW” moment

“Every shipowner wants its ships to have an innovation that becomes a photo opportunity for passengers – it’s a very conscious part of the design process.”

(Adam D. Tihany)


Creating Inspiration

We spotted this quote by Adam D. Tihany while flicking through the Cruise and Ferry Interiors Magazine 2019 and it really resonated with our design team.  My Tihany speaks about the “WOW” moment – the feature within the interior scheme that catches becomes a photo opportunity for all visitors.

This really resonated with our team as we pride ourselves at Daedalian Glass Studios in creating the key focal features on many of the projects we are involved in.  Indeed, along with building relationships, exhibiting integrity, and delivering excellence; creating inspiration is one of our core business values.  Our aim is to inspire our clients creativity through our bespoke design, manufacturing, and installation service, providing clients with the sounding board to explore their creativity and push the boundaries of what they thought was possible to design in glass.

The “WOW” moment

Bespoke excellence is our benchmark and designing the “WOW” moment is our benchmark for a successful project.  This can be seen across our past portfolio from the 1600+ glass pieces installed across the Majlis Wall at a Saudi Royal Palace to the stained glass panels at The Magpie Cafe in Whitby.  The etched partitions at York Racecourse to the bar front of the Beaufort Bar at the Savoy Hotel, or the glass shards at the Hope Street Hotel.
