With the release of the designs for Astroneer Luggage, JooHyung and Sunjin Baek look to capitalize on the luxury space tourism market. Designed to handle the “rugged terrain and differential atmospheric pressure,” while still offering customers sleek, futuristic design elements, this series of one-of-kind bags and carry-ons are intended to be both functional and stylish.
Astroneer plans to offer a variety of bag sizes that can be packed into one compact, wheelable unit. The bags themselves are made of a hard, outer shell that's transparency can be adjusted to allow for greater visibility mid-flight. In addition, the product will have internal environmental controls to protect the contents of one's luggage.
Although it may be a while before full-fledged space tourism takes off, it is exciting to see a company move into the highly luxurious realm of space travel products, and it will be interesting to see if space-friendly design's like Astroneer's can land initial on-earth use.
