Celebrity Cruises have ‘appointed’ a ‘Design Ambassador’ to help introduce their latest class of ships- the Edge Class.
In a partnership with Nate Berkus, an award-winning designer, Celebrity and Nate will host a series of ‘reveal events’ along with Celebrity’s President and CEO Lisa Lutoff-Perlo and Chairman and CEO of Royal Caribbean Cruises Richard D. Fain. March 2017 will see the design story come to life in 3D for the world to see.
In a statement from Celebrity Cruises, CEO and President, Lisa Lutoff-Perlo was excited that they had Nate on board for as a ‘Design Ambassador’.
“Nate Berkus embodies modern luxury, and evokes a global aesthetic with his forward-thinking style, which is admired by the design world and the world at large. When we first sat down with Nate, we knew this was going to be an incredible partnership. Design is in our DNA, as well as Nate’s, plus we share a love for the same things: modern luxury, one-of-a-kind design, and global travel. We couldn’t think of a better person to collaborate with on the truly transformational Edge Class.”
Nate also added that he was excited for the role as ‘Design Ambassador’ and looked forward to working with Celebrity Cruises and the Edge Class ships. He said:
“When Celebrity approached me about a potential partnership, I couldn’t wait to get onboard – pun intended. Their commitment to delivering the very best in terms of luxury design, but also their attention to the overall experience, the level of detail and care, really stood out for me,” said Berkus. “I love the idea that we can travel beautifully, and that every moment of the experience – from start to finish – is exceptional. That’s what the Edge Class is all about.”
Having been seen as a ‘pioneer’ in his industry since the age of 24 when he established his award-winning interior design buisness, Berkus has been showcasing his talent and design philosophy for interior design globally for the last 20 years and also includes product lines such as home abd baby collection at Target, fabric line at Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores and has also been an Artistic Advisor for LG STUDIO.
The Autumn of 2018 will see the scheduled delivery of the first in the Edge Class of ships, Celebrity Edge with second ship Celebrity Beyond due for delivery in Spring 2020. Third and fourth ships are also scheduled for Autumn 2021 and 2022 respectively. The Edge class of ships will be the first new class of ships built in almost a decade since the construction of the highly successful and revolutionary Solstice Class ships.
More details of the new Edge Class ships will continue to be revealed this year and also in 2018.
