Bellows

A collection of nomadic luggage created around the ability to carry a range of technology products.

The concept is driven by the idea of providing a dual storage state for the nomadic traveler.

The user can simply use the bag as a streamlined laptop case holding a laptop and accessories or expand it using its innovative pleated bellow construction to become an overnight bag.

Allowing for flexible usage in a single product. In addition a distinctive visual language has been created with flowing joints and softened geometry.

Nava are a technical luggage manufacture, therefore the material research and selection reflect this approach.

This technical feeling has been softened with hand crafted fixing details and construction inline with Benjamin Hubert’s materials and process led design approach.Bellows by Benjamin Hubert for Nava

    • deborah

    • school bag

      umm it looks like my i-pad will get broken in this….not really convincing me on the strength front

  • day tripper

    overnight?
    there's travelling light and there's travelling light. maybe it's the pics but these look like they expand only enough to fit a pencil case and lunch box – if so, do they offer any significant improvement on the conventional satchel laptop bag?

    • sam

      You must have a big pencil case! They look like they get big to me.

  • Kirby

    The overall shapes and concept are pretty good, but i find the detailing not so great.

    The design formula here could be Starck Samsonite bags crossed with the brand 'Folk' clothing.

  • Lyn

  • traveller

    Really nice collection, and very interesting concept.

  • pockets

    they look hand-stitched or something you would come across at a town market. not sophisticated at all
