Studio Piet Boon is an internationally renowned design practice recognized for its multi-disciplinary design services and it’s remarkable talent of balancing functionality, aesthetics and individuality into one of a kind design experiences.
The bespoke Studio Piet Boon total concept approach blends architecture, interior and product design skills with each project’s context, culture and environment, delivering outstanding quality on a global scale.
Founded by designer and master craftsman Piet Boon (1958) in 1983, the studio originates from a carpenter workshop in Oostzaan in the Netherlands, that developed into a small studio specialized in the design of bespoke residences. Having gained experience in construction and carpentry at an earlier stage in his career, Boon discovered that in order to realize his unique design vision he needed to take full ownership of a design concept. This allowed him to focus on the functionality, comfort, aesthetics, individuality and durability of the exterior and complete interior of any project.
In 1986, interior designer Karin Meyn (1961) joined the company as business partner and Creative Director Interior & Styling. Recognized as a world-class interior stylist, Karin Meyn played an instrumental role in defining the timeless characteristic Studio Piet Boon philosophy and style.
Over the years Studio Piet Boon has grown into a globally operating design company and proudly manages an exclusive portfolio of private, corporate and commercial clients. Still rooted in Oostzaan today, the Studio Piet Boon headquarters are home to the flagship showroom for the Piet Boon furniture collection as well as a to a dynamic and international team of experienced professional designers, architects and stylists. What drives the team is to excel on every project, creating a long-lasting, inspiring and rewarding experience for their clients.
The project portfolio demonstrates exterior and interior design services, on-site styling, and product designs for both owned and licensed products that vary from furniture and floors to lighting. The rich variety of the portfolio can be illustrated by numerous exciting projects such as restaurant The Jane in Antwerp, the Park Hyatt Tokyo hotel, Land Rover limited editions, Serax Base tableware by Piet Boon, residential projects Huys 404 and Oosten in New York and beautiful private residences in both metropolitan and beach locations around the world.
Studio Piet Boon shapes her concepts based on the mission to positively impact the lives and wellbeing of her clients – and their clients.
As a corner stone of the design philosophy, functionality lies at the basis of every Studio Piet Boon design. It is what makes reason and ratio collide and stems from the studio’s rich history and design craftsmanship.
Secondly, the characteristic Studio Piet Boon aesthetic signature can be found in the use of strong lines, rich natural materials, symmetry and innovative durable solutions for the optimum use of space and light and natural resources like the wind.
Thirdly, the team is highly motivated to truly understand the needs of her clients and embrace their values and way of life. This insight allows them to shape the individual identity of each project which is crucial for the creation of a unique, customized sense of home.
Seamlessly blending these three corner stones into one holistic and enthralling experience is what characterizes the signature of Studio Piet Boon and what enables them to engage in long lasting relationships with their clients and partners.
This exclusive and timeless design enables visitors to experience both the possibilities of Porcelanosa natural stone and the Studio Piet Boon design philosophy to its fullest. To put full focus on the beauty of the stone, we opted to approach the bathroom as a ‘blank canvas’ where the walls virtually en frame the natural stone as if it were an actual piece of art. Walls and ceiling are executed in a white stucco with rounded corners,along the ceiling edge we see a plastered light cove, providing diffuse illumination.The central stone tub and stone lavatory desks get additional attention by placing trim less spotlights above.Though differing in texture(matte versus satin gloss), shape and size, the same natural stone is used throughout the whole bathroom. Lavatory, bath, shower as well as the floor are all made of beige colored natural stone. Bath ware is kept to a minimum, drawing all attention to the delicate detailing and accentuating the uncommonly high quality and finishing of the material used.
