Orient Express Revelation/: A new chapter for rail travel, and a new destiny for a legendary train.
Orient Express presents “Orient Express Revelation”, exclusively revealing the future Orient Express train imagined by Maxime D’Angeac. The new design is shown at the Design Miami/ fair, from November 30 to December 4.
140 years ago, Georges Nagelmackers turned his dream into reality by launching the first luxury Orient Express trains. Today, the legend continues with the unveiling of the future Orient Express luxury train.
Completely re-imagined, the old historic carriages, disappeared, forgotten, and then found again, are back in service. Reimagined by Maxime d’Angeac and the finest artisans in France, the first cars will be available for public exploration in 2024, with a formal launch in 2025.
“We are proud, today, to reveal the first images of the future Orient Express train. A story inspired by a dream, a timeless train, the object of all fantasies and which becomes a reality. Maxime d’Angeac’s design awakens the myth with the revelation of its luxury, modernity, and French elegance. Tomorrow, the Orient Express will shine again, proud of its 140 years of history and looking to the future. The legend continues.” – Sébastien Bazin, Chairmain & CEO, Accor.
Artisan of travel since 1883, Orient Express sublimates the Art of Travel with its luxury trains, unique experiences, and collections of rare objects. And coming soon: its first hotels around the world, with the opening of Orient Express La Minerva in Rome and Orient Express Palazzo Donà Giovannelli in Venice in 2024. An additional project has been announced in Riyadh, the first city in the Middle East to announce the arrival of an Orient Express hotel.
In parallel with the launch of the Orient Express imagined by Maxime d’Angeac, Orient Express La Dolce Vita will welcome its first passengers on board its luxury trains in 2024 – making up a full universe that will offer Orient Express travelers a complete ultra-luxury travel experience.
