If Louis Vuitton luggage feels just too… square for your taste, Japanese designer Naoki Kawamoto has you covered. His asymmetrically faceted Orishiki suitcase folds flat into a geometric pattern inspired by origami art. Since most luggage spends 99.9% of its time being empty, huge, and in the way, this looks like a pretty clever solution (though we wonder about durability).
Kawamoto calls it “a nomadic piece of interior architecture,” and seeing it on the street, it’s hard to disagree:
Here’s what the suitcase looks like folded flat. Kawamoto says it’s suitable for hanging as wall art; I think it looks a little too much like one of the monsters from Starship Troopers, but you may disagree.
Kawamoto has also adapted the design into a handbag-sized option. Purse-snatchers beware: you might cut yourself on this thing.
