Arlo Skye - The Carry-On Luggage by Mauricio Issa

Home > Winners > #49038


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Arlo Skye - The Carry-On

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Luggage

INSPIRATION:
Luggage is a 32B usd market with an antiquated business model and product designs. Cost of goods to retail mark ups as massively inflated driven by middle men margins, physical store rents, overstocked inventories, and commissioned sales people. On the design side, mainstream luggage brands have not evolved much from the use of nylon and poly carbonate. Regardless of price point, the products look the same. We aimed to disrupt the industry by using novel materials and changing the business model. Integrating 3 core values, quality, elegance and practical intelligence.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
We believe aesthetics are integral to usefulness. We sourced a lightweight aluminum magnesium alloy from the U.S. It is 2.3 times stronger than poly carbonate. A high density anti microbial interior lining from Taiwan, Full grain vegetable tanned leather from Florence, Italy. Patented Japanese Silent Run Lisof wheels, 15 percent quieter than counterparts. Lithium ion cells from Japan for our built in, 10050mAh portable battery that can be removed without opening the case and replaced zippers with TSA approved open/close coded locks.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The Carry On operates on 4 wheels which have 360 degree Omni directional rotation. A telescopic handle extends up and down with 3 different height stages. To allows users to maneuver comfortably. USB Power Bank on the handle housing, accessible and removable from the outside of the case by pushing a spring enabled latch. Allow for a simple, on the go charging of mobile devices. The interior design is made of 2 systems. Removable compression panels that can be used for packing and compression straps to hold everything together.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
Project Started October 2015 in NYC and finalized in June 2016 in NYC. The first production batch is due to deliver in August 2016 to the first 300 pre-order clients.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
We analyzed several series for the Aluminum Magnesium alloy for best tensile strength and density. Visited factories that specialize in metal forming for our design requirements, tested several finishes to achieve the desired shine and anodized to improve resistance to scratches. We are one of the first to use Silent run Lisof patented Japanese wheel material, which is 15 percent quieter than polyurethane wheels. For the custom plastic parts, we used virgin polypropylene and ABS Injection molding. Specially designed and tooled to fit our Carry On and maximize packing space.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
55.8*35.5*22.8 cm , (22x14x9in) Limit Size for Carry-On among major airlines

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
-

CHALLENGE:
Our first challenge was metal forming. Options included superplastic forming, deep drawn, and stamping bending. We decided on the latter due to production speed, choice of aluminum alloy and quality of the factory. With elegance in mind, we wanted to focus on design elements that mattered most. We added critical rigidity to the shells by having the horizontal grooves, carefully placed without compromising our design philosophy and respecting other design patents. As we had a large handle housing to accommodate the portable charger, we had to completely redesign it, so didn’t take too much space on the inside while maintaining usefulness.
