Vacuum Suitcases
The Pumpack Gets Rid of Air to Make Room for More Clothing

By: Ana Lopez (Star) Nov 29, 11

For those who struggle to travel light, the Pumpack might be the perfect suitcase. Designed by Yejee Lee, Jongchan Mun, Seobin Oh and Woneui Hong, this wonderful design concept not only boasts the ability to expand thanks to its flexible hood, but it also offers a way to maximize packing by using a vacuum to compress clothing and other packed goods.

This product consists of a standard piece of luggage, except this piece’s handle is also a pump. In the first compartment, clothes are put into vacuum bags, then the air is pump out with the handle, increasing storage room by 70 %. Another compartment is used to store hard items.

The Pumpack is a revolutionary product that makes the task of packing a lot easier. The only withdraw is that clothes might become wrinkled. This suitcase is a 2011 red dot design concept winner
