Cullinan Genève 2019
Following its global launch in the peaks of the Grand Tetons, Wyoming, the world’s media declared Cullinan unequivocally “Effortless Everywhere”. This transformative all-terrain vehicle has now begun a remarkable Bespoke journey with the marque’s patrons who continue to create truly personal expressions of their lifestyles. An exclusive Cullinan has been curated in recognition of this extraordinary adventure.
The Genève 2019 commission intelligently reconciles the distinct notions of luxury and utility that Cullinan embodies. The brand’s hallmark five-coat high gloss paint finish is rendered with a Petra Gold hue and fine Navy Blue coachline, recalling the khaki shades favoured by explorers, while Navy Blue and Oatmeal interior appointments celebrate a similarly functional colourway wrought in the finest leather hides. In addition, natural Open Pore Royal Walnut veneer is jewelled with a Bespoke timepiece and highly polished aluminium Bespoke Audio speaker grilles, subtly referencing the technical capability of Rolls-Royce’s proprietary audio system.
To the rear, the brand’s Bespoke Collective of designers, engineers and craftspeople present Genève 2019’s most indulgent expression of all-terrain luxury. Mounted within a removable Recreation Module modestly stowed in the motor car’s boot, The Hosting Service embodies the notion of giving pause to extraordinary company and is perfectly appointed to enrich time spent with loved ones.
Once the motorised door is raised and drawer fully deployed, hosts are presented with an upper tier of Bespoke stainless steel cocktail and seasoning services and lower tier of elegantly stowed glassware and American Walnut serving boards. Should the user wish to present their guests with appetisers, two stainless steel dishes etched with the RR monogram can be removed from their Natural Grain leather holster in the centre of the Hosting Service and placed to one side in recessed, leather-trimmed coasters finished with aluminium bezels.
Aperitifs can be mixed in highball crystal glasses, discreetly frosted with the RR monogram, using the stowed zester, jigger, ice tongs and American Walnut muddler. A hidden compartment contains linen napkins to serve while paring knives, stainless steel drinking straws and a pepper grinder complete the set. This remarkable piece will be exhibited alongside Viewing Suite, two rear-facing, beautifully contemporary, leather chairs and a cocktail table stored in the rear compartment of Cullinan.
