RIMOWA Teams Up With Designer To Build Fully Functional Car Out Of Its Luggage
By Izza Sofia, 12 Apr 2019
Spanish designer Guillermo Santomá—known for fusing art and function in his works—has reimagined RIMOWA’s famous luggage bag into a car as part of an exhibition put together by both the carrier label and art magazine KALEIDOSCOPE for Milan Design Week 2019.
Santomá’s gas station-inspired installation, aptly called GAS, is housed inside Milan’s public space Spazio Maiocchi. The installation is a play of light and sound, and comprises a car constructed out of RIMOWA’s recognizable aluminum casing. According to the designer, the piece is inspired by the US West Coast as well as the Twentysix Gasoline Stations series by pop artist Ed Rusha.
The exhibit is accompanied with a short film, created by Thibaut Grever, which shows footage on its construction and creative process. If you’re interested to look at it, head down to the Spazio Maiocchi to view the GAS installation until 14 April.
