italian designer andrea ponti has launched a kickstarter campaign to fund ‘floatti’, a suitcase that references the concept of travel as movement, transition, and transformation. its superior material quality, innovative features and unique style offer a comfortable traveling experience. ‘travel as transition’ is conveyed by the use of polycarbonate, aluminum and leather that alternate seamlessly for a harmonious look that is lightweight and extremely durable. the genuine leather trims give it a vintage accent and a familiar feel, while increasing its usability and comfort.

‘travel as movement’ has been reinterpreted in the suitcase with its innovative suspension system. ‘floatti’ is the first bag with one suspension for both pushing and pulling motions which ensures multi-directional rolling, great stability, and smooth maneuverability, even on the bumpiest surface. its handbag tray, with a recessed top surface and retractable strap, is designed to hold items securely in place, even on the move.

‘travel as transformation and connection’ is captured in the ‘floatti’ embedded technologies and hi-tech features. the smart handle gives immediate hassle-free access to phones: making calls, texting, launching maps… everything is possible just by tapping the retractable pull handle. the integrate scale is extremely useful and discrete: it displays the weight only when the suitcase is lifted by the handle. the onboard battery can fully charge and iPhone up to seven times or a MacBook up to 1.5 times, and the detachable electronics compartment makes it possible to take all electronics through security in one effortless motion.
