SmartGlass in Cruise Ship Design

Yran & Storbraaten Architects (Y&S), founded in 1983, is one of the world’s leading architectural firms in the cruise vessel industry.

During the last 25 years their architectural and interior design practices in the cruise industry alongside land based projects, have encompassed many large, influential projects and clients.

Yran & Storbraatens expertise in applying good sensible design philosophies, clever space planning together with radical concept development speaks for itself on a vast list of completed projects.

Less than two years ago, Viking River Cruises announced a new state of the art $250 million fleet program alongside details of its four vessels which debuted this month. Designed by architects Yran & Storbraaten, the ships, Viking Freya, Viking Idun, Viking Njord and Viking Odin, are the line’s first Longships, a new class of vessel within the Viking fleet.

LC SmartGlass was recently installed on the new state of the art Freya & Idun Ships, two of four longship class-vessels launched as part of Vikings expansion program.

LC SmartGlass was used within each room on the ships to separate bedroom from bathroom creating a bright, spacious interior.
