RIMOWA’s “As Seen By” series, a traveling exhibition in collaboration with art group, The Community, which began long before the pandemic as a method to promote the work of local artists, took on new meaning following the initial lockdown.

The exhibition displays RIMOWA’s most recognizable material in a new light, some of the more familiar materials including grooved aluminum sheets and spare parts were distributed to a varied group of artists, ranging from modern artists and creative studios to industrial designers. Selected for their craftsmanship capabilities and unique visual expression, each artist created a singularly distinctive sculpture. Despite their differing styles, the artists were brought together by these shared materials, which created a visual language that ran throughout the show.
