Nowadays Marco and Vittorio are at the healm of De Jorio Design International and it was Marco who agreed to share his musings in our cover story. This issue’s keynote, meanwhile, comes from Lisa Lutoff-Perlo. Fastidious about interior design, her insights about the technical innovations and challenges of new flagship Celebrity Edge inevitably deliver a rewarding read. More than once in these pages we reference the enhanced status of the interior designer, “We’re no longer considered the decorators!” says Tillberg Design of Sweden’s Fredrik Johansson. Actually, a number our designer interviews allude to an evolution in the scale of the role. Read more from AD Associates on page 46, Studio DADO’s Greg Walton on page 54 and SMC Design’s Andy Yuill on page 44. For over 20 years Cruise & Ferry Interiors has been the proud, but lonely, champion of the extraordinary talent within the maritime interior design and supplier community. It remains the only dedicated salute to those responsible for the most astonishing interiors at sea. But not for much longer. Our audience will finally all come together in person at the inaugural Cruise Ship Interiors Expo in Miami next June. As Trimline’s Mike Oliver recently remarked, this industry sub-sector will get the grand occasion it surely merits! And so our 2019 edition will move from its regular September slot to June, in time to get into the delegate bags at the show. Very likely more media channels will follow, we will welcome them all but will always secretly enjoy having been here for you first!
