Nothing says “savvy-traveler” like strolling through the airport with luggage emblazoned with limited edition, high concept graphics, preferably some designed by a prominent Icelandic artist. Lo and behold: German brand Rimowa has collaborated with Olafur Eliasson on a series of stickers, soon to be available for purchase on December 3.

The 46-piece collection includes a variety of stickers that center around humanity’s relationship to the planet. Many stickers are images of rocks and crystals, while others are just text in green capital letters. “ATMOSPHERE”, one reads, “ECOSYSTEM”, another.

The decals don’t come cheap—a set costs $340.00 online—but the proceeds benefit the Little Sun Foundation, Eliasson’s nonprofit focused on bringing solar power to the world.

This isn’t the first time that Rimowa, a 120-year-old company, has collaborated with a high profile partner. A recent collection was designed with Off-White, Virgil Abloh’s fashion line.

Those craving Rimowa stickers who can’t quite afford the hefty price tag need not worry; the brand stocks other less expensive options on their site.
