A hardshell trolley that collapses in a
based on an origami folding technique.

Hardshell suitcases are 90% of their
lifetime stowed in a cabinet!

All suitcases on the market go for
lightweight and stability – which is of
course very important, but none of them
consider the point of usability when they
are “not” in use.
Stowed suitcases and trolleys need a lot of
precious space in apartments that get
smaller and smaller these days.
It´s all about efficiency and minimisation.

Therefore the target was to develop a
suitcase that can collapse in a second and
reduce 80% of the volume, without forgetting
lightweight and stability!!!
