Limited Edition Piet Boon Designed Range Rover Debuts in Malaysia
KUALA LUMPUR, 12 OCTOBER 2016 – To commemorate 10 years of durable and
timeless collaborations with Land Rover, renowned Dutch based lifestyle and one of the
most iconic designers, Piet Boon, today debuted his latest bespoke limited edition
design Range Rover in Malaysia.
The unique collaboration between Land Rover and Piet Boon dates back to 2006 where
Studio Piet Boon was approached on the premise of the studio’s philosophy of
balancing functionality, aesthetics and individuality which was a perfect match for Land
Rover’s brand values; performance, luxury and excellence.
Boon, who founded his award-winning Amsterdam based studio in 1983 said: “My
collaboration with Land Rover is indeed timeless and durable as it stood the test of time
for a decade this year. I am also very pleased to see that my designs and features for
the four-wheel drive Range Rover Sport have evolved.”
“The main ingredients that determine the success of the collaboration with Land Rover
is the shared values, trust, friendship and commitment to delivering the highest quality
products,” added the designer with 30 years of experience.
“In this special collaboration with Piet Boon, our arrangement with him is to have his
signature touches intertwined with the design of our products. As you can see from the
design of the car owned by Selangor Properties Berhad and AIRA Residence there is a
sense of harmony,” explained Datuk Aishah Ahmad, Managing Director, Jaguar Land
Rover Malaysia Sdn Bhd.
Since the collaboration was first initiated with the British car brand, Piet Boon has
designed and launched over ten limited edition designs, varying from Range Rovers to
Defenders and Range Rover Sport’s to Evoque’s. The latest edition to the family is the
‘Last Defender by Piet Boon’.
In addition to the Land Rover partnership, Piet Boon has also collaborated with other
selected brand association partners among them including Miele and Bang & Olufsen,
to provide a comprehensive experience and character for each of the projects. He also
has licensing agreements with 11 partners, including Moooi, Formani, Bod’or and
“In an attempt to continuously challenge the status quo and raise the bar of endless
possibilities, I believe in working in a functional partnership to allow the essential
element of learning where curiosities are often satisfied,” Boon emphasized.
The master craftsman’s portfolio currently includes bespoke concept and design for
hotels, private homes, office space, restaurants, apartment buildings and neighborhood
in over forty countries around the world.
Adding to his list of worldwide accomplishments, Piet Boon marked his footprint in
Malaysia via a collaboration with Selangor Properties Berhad (SPB), a pioneer in
Malaysia’s property development scene to design their most coveted luxury
condominium, AIRA Residence.
Selangor Properties Berhad’s vision for AIRA Residence to provide the promise of
luxury living is further strengthened through the collaboration with Piet Boon and two
other world renowned designers Franklin Po from Tierra Design for landscape
architecture; and Alen Nikolovski from Aedas for architectural design.
Commenting on his works for AIRA Residence, Boon said, “I have managed to blend
the concept of spatial arrangements with the East-Asian way of living which have seen
numerous research on Malaysian cultures, way of living and interior customs being
“Just like the Land Rover collaboration, my aim was to create designs and solutions that
are both functional and aesthetically pleasing and I am delighted to have achieved that
and at the same time, retain the identity of Selangor Properties Berhad,” expressed the
