The concept These modular suitcases can be attached, detached or manipulated to adapt to anything from a one-day meeting out of town to a week on the beach. The base unit, a carry-on-size case, is suitable for a 24-hour trip and can be converted into a backpack or briefcase. The multifunctional device is made of Curv (Propex Fabrics), a new durable and ultralight polypropylene material.

The designer With an architecture diploma from Université Laval, Alexandre Berthiaume founded FUTIL Design to showcase his furniture, lighting, multimedia and graphic design projects. He’s shown his work in the U.S. and France and won second prize for his Flexx lamp at the Montreal International Interior Design Show.

What the jury said


“An effective and simple idea. It has a clear and coherent intention that seems to work well on a practical level.” – Sylvie Berkowicz

“This is a creative way to add flexibility to travel. Sleek design and different carrying options give travellers lots of flexibility. The modular approach looks simple to use, and the industrial design looks durable for heavy travel.” – Michael Moskowitz

“This is a great system. It is smart, simple and completely necessary. The material resolution, scale and design are well executed… a great project.” – Karim Rashid
