︎Commissioned by Rimowa, Manifold transformed Rimowa’s signature suitcase into a foldable cushion by replacing the aluminum body with custom upholstery. It is a regeneration of the structure using materials that can be regarded as physically opposite to the original as it juxtaposes the softness of the foam cushion against the hardness of the metal.
