Exhibited at the auction in 2014’s Bazaar Art Fair, the Rimowa Topas Luggage was decorated based on Syaiful Aulia Garibaldi’s scientific lens. The science involved microscopes, microorganisms, abd the artist/scientist Syaiful Aulia Garibaldi. While studying agriculture at IPB (Institut Pertanian Bogor), Syaiful discovered the pretty shapes and colors of microorganisms. He then went on to study visual arts at ITB (Institut Teknik Bandung) in order to paint what he sees through his lenses of microscopes. Rimowa specifically asked for Syaiful’s miniscule discoveries, for there is beauty in the small things.
