Samsonite Design & Developement Team (Erik Sijmons), Belgium
Taking nature as their source of inspiration, the suitcases of this collection stand out from the competition. Their ripple-effect shell design is based on the pattern that a stone creates when dropped into water. The product design mirrors its function, which focuses primarily on durability and resilience. Weighing between 1.7 and 2.5 kg, depending on size, the Lite-Shock suitcase can take an even larger amount of luggage without exceeding the weight limits imposed by airlines companies.
Statement by the jury
»The distinctive design feature of Lite-Shock is the ripple motif that defines the suitcase not only with regard to its aesthetic appeal, but also in functional terms thanks to its shock-absorbing capability.«
