hamburg-based product designer, anne lorenz has created ‘home traveller’, a combination storage chest and handbag. the mobile object is on show as part of [D3] design talents at imm cologne 2011.

measuring 70 x 60 x 40cm, the soft leather bag is a hybrid accessory and storage unit for the home. acting as a piece of portable furniture, the bag can be easily transported, changing its function to suit the needs of its user.

when filled with contents, the bag sits upright, supported by the sturdiness of its wooden base. when not in use the bag compresses into a flat and easy to store item.
