Piet Boon for Land Rover
Ever since the first Land Rover vehicle was conceived in 1947, Land Rover has built vehicles that challenge what is possible. These in turn have challenged their owners to explore new territories and conquer difficult terrains. The vehicles epitomise the values of the designers and engineers who have created them. Each one instilled with iconic British design cues, delivering capability with composure. Which is how they continue to break new ground, defy conventions and encourage each other to go further. Land Rover truly enables you to make more of your world, to go above and beyond.
Any type of Land Rover is also undefeated leader in its segment when it comes to off-road characteristics. And on the paved road is a Land Rover no longer inferior to a comfortable, luxury or sports car. Durable and timeless are features that are not only the hallmarks of Land Rover, but also distinguishes the work of Studio Piet Boon. Our special collaboration with Land Rover dates back to 2006. Since then Piet Boon has designed numerous extraordinary ‘one of’ designer editions, including amongst others Defenders, multiple Range Rover Sport’s and Range Rover Evoque’s.
The latest ‘one-of’ designs is the Last Defender by Studio Piet Boon. Inspired by “Tin Tin in the Congo”, -the second volume of The Adventures of Tintin, the comics series by Belgian cartoonist Hergé- Piet Boon brought the vehicle back to her authentic aluminum state as a tribute to the iconic Defender. The vehicle was completely stripped of all its unnatural materials and differentiates itself amongst others by her Pure Aluminum coating, brown canvas soft top and luxury stainless steel detailing.
