Luggage design goes the extra mile
The iF DESIGN AWARD elevate luggage and bag designs that go the extra mile. Perhaps the most noticeable trend in this segment is the diversification of the product range to include backpacks, belt bags, briefcase, cabin cases, clutches, duffel bags, laptop bags, phone pouches, tote bags, wallets, in addition to the classic suitcase.
In terms of design, a key trend is the use of materials like polycarbonate, aluminum, and high-tech fabrics to make luggage both strong and lightweight. Another is the integration of smart features such as built-in charging ports, GPS tracking, and smart locks, making it easier for travelers to stay connected and secure while on the go. Designers are also paying more attention to the aesthetics of luggage, using bold colors and patterns or sleek and minimalist designs to create a luggage style to suit every taste and preference.
