Prolific studio Nendo have designed a suitcase for Italian brand Fabbrica Pelletterie Milano. The main shell is polycarbonate, a standard for suitcases, but the unique feature is the front, which is a softer fabric. Most suitcases have two halves, both of which are used as storage compartments, but this heavy lid then becomes unwieldy to open. This design takes into account that end-users often access the inside of their baggage while on-the-go, so depending on how the zipper is undone the lid can unroll in two different ways. It has some nice details, and a nice range of colours too.
