Mill+ worked to showcase the pioneering spirit of aviation and its subsequent success, by tying together the evolution of Rimowa as a brand, with historical figures, heroes and daredevils of the early aviation era.
The team also worked on a series of hand crafted art deco sketches, drawings and patterns which utilised a custom designed typography and were brought to life through animation.
Director Nils Kloth says, “Our initial concept frames were focused on the perfect blend of graphic and reality. We were very lucky to find a gorgeous location to shoot in, and in the final piece we elaborated a lot more on the beauty of the live-action footage.
The resulting film is a beautiful homage to aviation captured through the eyes of our protagonist pioneer, supported by rich vignettes illustrating the conception of the plane as well as the era that came with it.”
