iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_02 2020

This product solves two common problems that crop up when you travel with a small child. First, there are lots of extra things you need to pack. The best way to manage this is to pack the baby things in a separate case, preferably one designed with separate compartments for clothes, bottles, diapers, etc. Secondly, at your destination, or in hotels on the way, there is often no suitable bed for your child, leaving them to sleep on a mattress on the floor or to share a large bed with you. This suitcase solves both problems, as it opens up into a portable cot, guaranteeing your child a sound sleep in a familiar bed.

This is a multi-functional case that can also be used as a travel cot for babies. Traveling with small children is never easy, but with babies there's the added burden of all the things parents need to carry. This design lightens their load by neatly combining a specially designed case with a travel cot. However, the overall design ought to be more detailed in terms of material decisions and structure. This design serves the 3rd and 12th of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
