The announcement follows on from the success PST enjoyed providing furniture to Virgin’s inaugural ship, Scarlet Lady and the team is proud to be afforded a second opportunity to partner with Virgin Cruises.
Revealing the attention to detail required, PST’s Kris Bannon explained: “Designing for cruise ships is unique with an entirely new set of parameters and considerations to take into account, PST has to ensure every detail is precise.”
Initially providing furniture for just the casino aboard Scarlet Lady, this time bespoke ranges have been designed for throughout the ship including restaurants, night club and gaming floor.
Virgin’s intention is to provide guests with “spaces that transform to a given mood”, a brief which PST has embraced from concept through to manufacturing and production.
PST and Virgin Cruises’ partnership is based on design innovation and manufacturing excellence and according to Frank Weber, Senior Vice President of Hotel Operations for Virgin Voyages it was a conscious decision to make the Valiant Lady “adult by design.”
“We are building a sanctuary at sea for the 18+ traveller, complete with epic experiences for our sailors to enjoy.
“PST has a proven track record for success and their design offers a high-quality onboard experience. This made them a natural fit to provide exceptional seating products for our sailors,” he said.
