This year marks a new and exciting chapter for Tihany Design, the luxury hospitality design studio founded in 1978 by Adam D. Tihany. For the first time in the firm’s 42 year history, Adam introduces his new managing partner, the prolific and ambitious young designer Alessia Genova.
Alessia began her career at Tihany Design, joining the team after graduating from Politecnico di Milano, first as an intern, later rising to Senior Designer and then Studio Director. As the newly appointed Managing Partner of Tihany Design, Alessia will oversee the overall operation for the studio and is responsible for ensuring that each project is carefully attended to from initial concept to completion. She will serve as a mentor to the firm’s next generation of designers, guiding them through the important aspects of design: innovation, an attention to detail and a passion for the process.
Tihany Design’s bespoke interiors are among the most iconic, luxury properties in the world, including The Beverly Hills Hotel, Four Seasons DIFC in Dubai, Belmond Hotel Cipriani in Venice, The Breakers Palm Beach, The Oberoi New Delhi and many signature restaurants for celebrity chefs including Thomas Keller, Daniel Boulud and Heston Blumenthal. The firm has also become very involved within the cruise industry, working extensively with Carnival brands including Seabourn and Cunard and designing ground-breaking luxury cruise ships such as the Seabourn Encore.
