Eastern & Oriental Express

Client: Belmond

Project: Eastern & Oriental Express

Launch: 1993

The Eastern & Oriental Express luxury train recaptures the golden age of rail travel through one of the world’s most beautiful and exotic regions. The train offers three grades of beautifully appointed compartments: Pullman Cabins, State Cabins and Presidential Suites. Each cabin is fully air-conditioned with an en-suite shower, washbasin and WC and features large picture windows for an excellent view of the passing scenery. 

JPA delivered the total redesign of the interior of the train including restaurant cars, bar cars and baggage cars as well as presidential and state suites. The interior walls are cherry wood and elm burr paneled, adorned with decorative marquetry and intricate inlays. Inspiration came from Malaysia, Thailand and China and consisted of eastern designs, wooden marquetry, wall carvings and mirrors and where possible local artisans were employed.
