I designed this carry-on luggage to articulate the lost romance of air travel.

The design also pulls from the golden age of ocean liners: the black lacquered finish will become beautifully scraped and chipped as the suitcase travels with you, revealing the bamboo plywood beneath. The patina will develop with each trip you take.

The wood bar serves as a carrying handle when closed. It unfolds, using simple 45-degree angles between bars and rotating joints, to allow the user to roll the suitcase.

The interior has four drawers with bamboo bases and soft felt walls. The bottom drawer is sized for laptops. Instead of unpacking your clothes once you reach your destination, the carry-on suitcase functions as a very livable wardrobe while you’re on the go.

    I would love to see a picture of this carry on luggage. The idea of having not to unpack my clothes when I get to my destination would be awesome. Is it lightweight?
