Rolf Benz and the TechArt Porsche Cayenne

October 22, 2018

For over 50 years Rolf Benz has been at the forefront of excellence in luxury furniture design. Often featured on the blog and with several pieces in our Boston Waterfront showroom, we enjoy the thoughtfulness that goes into their designs.

Early in 2018, Rolf Benz partnered with TechArt – a high end European tuning shop that specializes in improving existing Porsches – to bring to the world a completely custom Porsche Cayenne, with the whole interior designed by the talented people at Rolf Benz to give the vehicle “Pleasant, unobtrusive luxury”.

Made from full grain leather and 100% wool, the upholstery is not only luxurious but also incredibly durable and ready to withstand the punishment that typical automobile upholstery takes. From the changes in temperature and humidity to light exposure, the designers at Rolf Benz took each and every factor into account in their design.

« The loving attention to detail creates surprising subtleties. »

While the designers at Rolf Benz were excited to work on this project with TechArt, it wasn’t without its challenges. Bettina Hermann, project manager at Rolf Benz, described the wool to be quite difficult to work with when creating the seats.

« On the one hand, we wanted the seats to be sleek and streamlined to emphasize the vehicle’s sporty components, but we also wanted to bring in an element of casual and homely well-being on the other. The fabric gathers on the side bolsters were the ideal solution for this. »

It all comes down to the small details. From the pleated wool fabric on each seat to leather and wool set into the trim on the interior of each door, it’s again the thoughtfulness that adds to the luxurious feeling one will have each time they get into the vehicle.

With Rolf Benz and TechArt branding delicately placed throughout the interior trim, it evokes even more sophistication in an already luxurious vehicle.
