RIMOWA x KALEIDOSCOPE Present Guillermo Santomá : Gas

Contemporary art magazine and creative studio Kaleidoscope once again teams up with the iconic luggage company RIMOWA on a multi-platform project developing in print, online, and live, during the Milan Design Week 2019. Featuring Spanish designer Guillermo Santomá (b. 1984), who was invited to share his progressive outlook on this timeless icon of functional luxury and purposeful travel, the collaboration will unfold through three separate but intertwined activations: a short film, an installation, and a printed publication.

The new installation at Spazio Maiocchi, inspired by the idea of a conceptual gas station, will be centered on a fully functioning car customized with RIMOWA aluminum into a light and sound sculpture.

A photo zine and short film—shot by Thibaut Grevet between the wild landscape of the Monegros desert and the artist’s studio and signature home in Barcelona—complete the project, providing exclusive insight into the making of this one-of-a-kind collaboration.

OPEN 9 – 14 APRIL 2019 ;  11 AM – 6 PM
