NEW YORK (August 29, 2019) – Ware Malcomb, an award-winning international design firm, today announced construction is complete on the newest retail location of RIMOWA, a leading global manufacturer of premium travel and carry-on luggage, at The Forum Shops at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. Ware Malcomb served as Architect of Record for the project.

RIMOWA’s new Las Vegas store is one of six projects that Ware Malcomb is working on for the high-end luggage and travel accessory retailer, which is a subsidiary of LVMH Group. Ware Malcomb also served as Architect of Record for the newly opened RIMOWA retail store in San Francisco and one currently underway in Honolulu. In addition, the firm provided interior architecture and design services for two stores in New York City and RIMOWA’s Client Care Facility in Long Island City, New York.

The Las Vegas store at The Forum Shops at Caesars Palace is comprised of 1,500 square feet in a new in-line casino promenade location. RIMOWA’s sleek and contemporary aesthetic was conveyed with a bright, clean pallet of colors. The design called for the extensive use of illuminated polycarbonate in the all-new perimeter millwork, as well as translucent acrylic for the freestanding fixtures. The Las Vegas store also features RIMOWA’s illuminated ‘conveyor belt’ that travels up the walls, across the ceiling, and morphs into shelving in the center of the space. A new second entrance was installed in the store to facilitate greater foot traffic and visibility.

“This striking new retail store design conveys the high quality and innovation that are key aspects of the RIMOWA brand,” said Bill Sotomayor, Regional Director of Ware Malcomb’s New York office.

“We look forward to continuing to roll-out this new retail concept for RIMOWA stores opening in key markets throughout the United States and Canada”, added Anthony Simon, Director, Retail Architecture & Design.

The General Contractor for the project was Alain Hirsch Construction Corp.
