Daniel Arsham x Rimowa Make Suitcase Art
Making its debut at Frieze New York, Rimowa resurrected a classic piece from its archive with the help of artist Daniel Arsham. Based on retro camera cases, the pair worked on a sculptural piece inspired by archaeology and natural material erosion — it’s meant to be a commentary on how quickly technology becomes obsolete. The Rimowa x Daniel Arsham Eroded Attache is encased in a metallic briefcase and comes with art handling gloves, a further means to preserve its status as a cultural artifact. The piece is currently being auctioned (along with a signed drawing of the artwork and a personal letter from Arsham) online at Sotheby’s ahead of a wide release on May 17th.
