Concrete / suitcase,luggage,trolley


This concept aims to tackle the major issues involving checked luggage on airplanes. The novel profile and the angled handle prevents the feet from stumbling against the back of the suitcase, especially in narrow spaces when rushing to catch a flight. Classic small wheels are replaced with bigger sturdy wheels which can withstand bumps and make it easier to roll on all types of terrain. Instead of zippers placed on the edge that easily break, Concrete has a roll-down fabric door that doesn’t need you to lay the suitcase on the ground to access your goods. This feature combined to the inner compartments, makes packing quick and effortless.
