Waiting Companion

Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

When we are waiting for the train, we can use this convenient table which is integrated in the backside of a suitcase: we can use the table to read, write, eat or drink coffee. A unique design that combines a simple table with a suitcase to make waiting time more enjoyable and effective for travellers or commuters.

A very useful idea for all travellers who have to wait for their next flight or train and need a space where to place food, drinks or their notebook. The tray could be easily integrated into the design of a trolley without too much effort.
Jury Statement
Design provides me with a great way of thinking, which helps to identify and solve those tricky problems in life. If I'm honored to have the chance to bring more comfort to people's lives, I owe it to the value of design itself.
