Since its first aluminium suitcase was debuted in 1937, RIMOWA has become synonymous with the strikingly minimalist metal. Now, this legacy is being celebrated with “As Seen By,” a travelling exhibition of artworks by local artists throughout the world curated by RIMOWA in partnership with art collective, The Community.

 

Launched long before the pandemic as a way to champion the work of local artists, RIMOWA’s “As Seen By” series took on new meaning after the first lockdown. With travel paused, it offered an exciting opportunity to commission works borne instead out of the raw materials used to craft RIMOWA’s suitcases.

 

 

 

 

The exhibition gives an elevated perspective to RIMOWA’s most iconic materials. A diverse collection of artists – from contemporary artists and creative studios, to industrial designers – were given materials that included grooved aluminum sheets and spare parts. Selected for their craftsmanship capabilities and unique visual expression, each artist created a singularly distinctive sculpture. Despite their differing styles, however, they were united by these shared materials, which creates a common visual language that runs through the exhibition.
