Stylish and functional, but also sustainable. Startup PHOENX creates a luggage for ecologically-conscious travelers, made from recycled and regenerated materials. The project is now on a Kickstarter’s campaign.
Designed in London, engineered in Italy PHOENX created a sustainable luggage: the outer shell is made from tough, 100% recycled polycarbonate with a wide aluminium handle built above the skin to maximise space. The case glides on Hinomoto silent-run wheels and is secured via a waterproof zip system and TSA-approved lock. Inside it boasts a dividing vacuum-sealed laundry bag and removable ultra-thin backpack. Modular construction means components can be removed, repaired or replaced with the use of a single tool
“When you feel it is time to renew it, you can send it back to us and choose between having it restyled by our creative design team or getting a new model.”
“PHOENX is not just about the present but is made to accompany you in your future adventures,” says Francesco Salom, Co-Founder & CEO, PHOENX. “When you feel it is time to renew it, you can send it back to us and choose between having it restyled by our creative design team or getting a new model.”
London-based startup PHOENX aims to enable travel while reducing its potentially disastrous footprint. The company’s debut contribution is a functional, modern, four-wheeled carry-on suitcase made from recycled and regenerated materials produced and cared for using the theory of permacultural design.
