French designer Matali Crasset continues her creative partnership with Italian company Campeggi to produce this “Concentré de Vie” Modular Sofa. The ground-level sofa consists of a hard prismatic frame filled with two L-shaped cushions, two square pillows, and a soft pad underneath them all. The detachment of the soft elements from the frame allow the user a number of possible configurations including a single bed, armrest, footstool or pouf.
In 1950, Rimowa presented the first-ever corrugated aluminum case, which quickly became the preferred case of the traveling elite, thanks to its lightweight, superior construction.
In 2010 the Cologne-based company presented its vintage series, recreating theis Style from yesteryear. Limited to a production run of 1,950 pieces, the series was offered in six different sizes—small suitcases to large travel pieces. Each numbered case is made of aircraft aluminum (duraluminium) and lined in a deep blue moiré interior, staying true to the aesthetics of the original versions. The handles are carved from a single block of aluminum, the result of a complicated, painstaking construction process, and the “retro” style locks display the case’s count within the 1,950 piece series stamped into the aluminum.
