Erler+Pless fits out flagship store

Rimowa GmbH, a leading producer of luggage in Europe and with flagship stores around the globe, has opened the doors to its second flagship store in Germany after Munich. Measuring around 240 square metres, it is in the Dom Carré right next to Cologne’s Dom Hotel. The challenge was to integrate our MatrixFrames into the existing shop concept. There were a total of seven partitions already set up by the shop fitter. Three of the seven frames had to be formed into concave shapes. The smallest format is 160 x 200 cm, the largest 420 x 200 cm.
With this project, our customer Rimowa constructed a museum about itself. The entire top floor of the latest Rimowa shop now shows a timeline beginning with the company’s founding at the end of the 19th century up to the present day. The textile banner of Erler+Pless displays the timeline and large photos from each era, underling the exhibits presented in front of it by Rimowa. (Old and new suitcase models from the company’s long history)
