Globetrotter Case by Ross Lovegrove

The lightest luggage you can carry

Globetrotter were the first company to create a lightweight durable case in vulcanized fibreboard, so knowing this and respecting their historical position I studied the potential of using state of the art contemporary developments in fibre to bring the case right up to date for the 21st century.

Globetrotter 110 is a carry on luggage system that looks to become the world's lightest for rigid cases.  

At a time when everyone is in the air flying around the planet, it makes sense to address the issue of lightness in life and 110 is a breakthrough in the synergy between technology, materials and form performing at the highest earth and human-centric level.  If you have to carry it yourself then lighten up!
