Design partnership

For Princess Traveler, ManGo develops new travel products on a regular basis. As with most designs developed by us, we aim to solve problems small and large by adding valuable features and user experiences. In this project the annoyance of losing or not knowing where you left your flight ticket and passport led to the concept design.

Concept design

A few sketches to solve the issue were presented to the client. In discussions it became clear that providing a safe place for the documents and not adding too much costs was of importance. The extendable handle was ideal to integrate the solution in; as it has a lot of unused space and in the perfect spot for the documents.
