Since the early 1900s the rich bourgeoisie travelled on steamships and trains with trunks enriched with brass details such as zip closures and wheels for ease of movement, equipped with different compartments dedicated to the stowage of clothing.
Designer: Marina Bani, Marco Penati
In the 21st century they’ve been making a comeback, but not for travelling with, rather, as a piece of furniture.
This is the trunk for men. We thought of creating a bar with room for inserting a refrigerator and a drawer to house cigars and glass holders and an led light to help prepare drinks. It has brass details and hinges. Entirely covered in leather and eco-leather for easy cleaning.
