The CSI+ lounge was one of the hottest areas at Cruise Ship Interiors Design Expo Americas (CSI). Here, CSI+ members could relax in style on furnishings supplied by the CSI+ community. Styled as a modern take on a beach club, the design combined crisp whites and creams with playful forms, such as a cube footstool and twisted variations on the disco ball.

Visitors to the show also dropped by to attend a Meet the Brand led by members of the YSA Design team. The speakers were: Fabiana Dornelas, Senior Interior Architect & Head of Sustainability & Implementation, Anne Mari Gullikstad, Senior Interior, Architect, Partner, CEO, Jan Krefting, Chairman, Partner & Senior Architect and Einar Jungård, Partner. The team discussed the studio’s brand identity, their approach to supplier selection and their favourite spaces to design on a ship.
