Kame by Nendo
Kame is a design created by Japan-based designer Nendo. The design is a hybrid polycarbonate-fabric suitcase for Fabbrica Pelletterie Milano, an upcoming Italian brand specializing in creative, unique suitcases and bags. The polycarbonate body is light yet strong, and the cloth lid supple for easier packing. The designers named the suitcase kame, tortoise in Japanese, for this structural resemblance to the animal with its hard shell. Unlike most suitcases, the lid unzips from the top as well as the side, making it easy to take things in and out of the suitcase when its upright.
