Rockstar Suite Design
Virgin Voyages’ RockStar Suites bring a fresh look to yachting glamour style heralding back to Virgin brand’s rock and roll heritage. Inspired by mega yachts and rock and roll style icons, the RockStar Suites feature Tom Dixon’s iconic retro-futurism designs with a palette of deep blues used with iridescent elements to echo the colours of the sky and sea when sailing.
The suite’s design features nautical touches with a brass beauty counter and bedhead lighting. The modern suites boast high-quality design elements and bespoke Tom Dixon furniture pieces. Because music is the soundtrack to the soul, each suite is equipped with a vinyl turntable.
Posh Suite Terrace, Scarlet Lady, Virgin Voyages
Because a rockstar can never have too much champagne, the sea terrace for each suite will feature a specially-designed champagne table where an ice bucket fits perfectly at the centre of the table situated next to stargazing loungers, and Yellow Leaf brand, sustainably sourced terrace hammocks.
“We were intrigued to be appointed to rethink some of the most interesting spaces on this ship. A very rare opportunity to delve into a completely new escapist realm,” said Tom Dixon of Design Research Studio.
“We wanted to use all aspects of the Virgin brand including our musical legacy, elements of Virgin Galactic and inspiration from Richard Branson’s Necker Island,” added Jamie Douglas, Senior Product Design Manager for Virgin Voyages. “The idea was to consider Sailor needs and comforts and create suites that were social, inspirational and relaxing so that they wanted to spend time in them.”
