Limited-Edition Centurion Card for Art Lovers

American Express is giving its art-savvy Centurion Cardholders a chance at an exclusive piece of conceptual art. The company is offering limited-time-only Centurion Cards as part of an exclusive collaboration with Dutch conceptual artist and architect, Rem Koolhaas.  

Koolhaas is a Dutch-born architect and artist who is also a Professor in Practice of Architecture and Urban Design at the Graduate School of Design at Harvard University. According to Wallpaper, a design and architecture magazine, Amex first approached the firm back in 2019 after coming across the Office for Metropolitan Arts’ (OMA, Koolhaas’s firm) very first commission in Boompjes in the early 1980s. The new card design is Koolhaas’s smallest ever.

Speaking to Wallpaper, the artist highlighted the value of the Amex partnership and graphic design to his work. “I see graphic design as a crucial domain to project ideas in,” he said. “Architecture is also a domain to project ideas in. The similarity (between the disciplines) is about ideas, and these can take any form.”
