Rimowa's instantly recognizable grooved aluminum luggage dates back to 1950, but the company's roots go back even farther than that. It was founded in Cologne in 1898 by Paul Morszeck, and it was his son Richard who created the company's first aluminum trunk in 1937 and combined his first and last names to give the company its distinctive moniker. This oversized tome takes a look at the company's 120-year history, from its original wooden designs up through its most recent creations, whether they're made from aluminum or polycarbonate, are carry-on friendly or even iPhone-sized. The informative text is set alongside over 100 illustrations, providing an in-depth look at an icon of design.
