SAMSONITE HARTLAN

Created for Samsonite in collaboration with Samsonite Asia Design Team, Hartlan is a hard-shell polypropylene luggage collection designed to be functional and sophisticated. The slender rectangular shape maximizes capacity and minimizes bulk. The round and smooth edges provide an overall sinuous look. The shell is carefully crafted and the details are exquisite. Filigree grooves add texture and provide a luxurious touch. Two sheer lines wrap around the shell accentuating its curves and guiding the eye to the other design elements. The collection has an ultra-protective security frame with sealed gasket closure features and integrated, recessed TSA combination lock, filigree-grooved handles with metal inserts, multi-material logo tag, and extremely light-running 60mm double wheels for check-in sizes. The shell is made with precision injection molding technology that creates invisible seams, clear edges, and embossed details.The multi-level texture gives an elegant matte finish and protects the luggage from scratches and the wear-and-tear of in-route handling. Hartlan is a 360-degree design concept that integrates aesthetics, functionality and materials engineering. The Hartlan luggage collection won the 2018 Red Dot Award for its convincing materials properties. Photography: Chow Wing Sing.
