(Project in Bachelor degree, in 2011)

Flight has transformed global travel into a more efficient and universally accessible activity.  Yet, for all its innovations, certain drawbacks remain. Delays are a common feature of airports, as are the resulting scenes of weary passengers strewn in awkward positions, attempting to rest but anxiously keeping an eye on their luggage. I was curious whether a quick spatial hack using minimal design elements could improve this experience.

The result was ‘Portable Private Space’, a temporary travel shelter whose structure is based on the most standard combination of luggage: one hold and one cabin bag. Connected to the luggage via detachable zips, two strips of fabric are secured in place when the traveller lies between them. The result is a small, tent-like zone where a passenger can simultaneously rest in privacy and secure their belongings.
