Award-winning designers…

Corinna Kretschmar-Joehnk, co-managing director of JOI-Design, accepted Germany’s most prestigious interior design award, the DIAP prize, for their work on the Moxy Frankfurt in September 2019. Denise Junger of BDIA commented on the project that, “The award-winning work shows the essential contributions made by interior designers through quality planning and design”.

Peter Joehnk, Managing Partner at JOI Design, will be one of the speakers at our unmissable Design Forecasting conference session, taking place on the first day of the expo, Wednesday 4th December.


Shores Global launched their groundbreaking eco-friendly chair, the Ocean Chair, at Cruise Ship Interiors Expo America in June of this year. Comprised of recycled fishing nets, rope, and plastic waste, all collected from the sea, the Ocean Chair (and soon-to-come Ocean Collection) is also designed for disassembly, meaning each component of the product can be recycled into its purest form and then reintroduced into new production circles. Shores Global, located in Miami and Denmark, say that they have salt water in their veins and they certainly take that seriously with their guardianship of our environment.

If you’d like to learn more about the upcoming Ocean Collection and Shores Global’s other cruise-ready products, visit them on Stand 414.

Incredible scale…

The Market Place on board Marella Explorer 2

Trimline took their partnership with Marella Cruises to the next level with the recent transformation of Golden Era into Marella Explorer 2. The project was the equivalent of four refits in one for Trimline, who was responsible for the majority of the public spaces on board. They employed onboard and quayside logistics managers together with 300 tradespeople, all working together to deliver Trimline’s trademark high-quality finish. The work paid off for Trimline, with Nick Hughes, Head of Technical Operations at Marella Cruises saying, “We are delighted with the results of this project.”

If you would like to work with Trimline on future projects visit them on Stand 418.
