Star chefs and luxury hospitality brands have long turned to Adam D. Tihany to devise refined interiors that feel worthy of their celebrated names, from the Beverly Hills Hotel to the Four Seasons. After 42 years in the biz, change is now afoot at the celebrated interiors firm, where Tihany has recently named his first-ever partner. Alessia Genova, who started at the studio after graduating from Politecnico di Milano, has risen within the ranks to managing partner, a title she quietly assumed earlier this year. Tihany and Genova spoke to AD PRO about their plans, why they make a great team, and what they see as the future of the hospitality business.
