In his presentation, Knego shares some of the glorious interiors of a select tier of Mid-20th Century liners and cruise ships that rivaled anything on land at the time. These one-off beauties were a far cry from the oversized, glitzy, Vegas-meets-amusement-park monster cruise ships of today.
From the great postwar transatlantic liners to the sleek Scandinavian cruise ships of the 1970s Love Boat era, ships were once showcases for their respective nations and featured edgy, trendsetting architecture and design elements from a cross section of greats, including Gio Ponti; Anne and Dorothy Marckwald; Kay Korbing; Gustavo Pulitzer; Michael Inchbald; Robert Tillberg; and Jack Heaney. Walk across Knego’s virtual gangway into a world of Arteluce lights; Cassina furnishings; Saarinen tulip chairs; Hockney art panels; Mascherini sculptures; Austin Purves reliefs; Emanuele Luzzati ceramics; and glass works by Franz Widerberg.
It’s all in this presentation and then some, waiting to be revisited by contemporary eyes.
