Concept designer Dror has worked on architectural, product and interior design projects all over the world, including one for a manmade island off Istanbul, fashion boutique Cut25 by Yigal Azrouël in New York and now a collection of expandable luggage for renowned luggage brand Tumi.
Dror’s 11-piece collection features groundbreaking technology which caters for the modern day traveller whose needs can change not only from one trip to the next but from the beginning to the end of a journey. The Dror for Tumi collection includes the first expandable hard case, which allows the capacity of the case to be almost doubled within seconds.
‘I don’t believe in static things,’ Dror says. ‘We crave and desire things that transform and change, especially when we’re talking about luggage.’
Tumi’s ongoing series, Case Studies, chronicles the stories of global travellers who use Tumi’s cases and bags as a major part of their jet-setting lifestyles.
Along the way they’ve also perfected the art of packing. Here are Dror’s top three tips:
1. Always put things like your passport or keys back in the same place; that way you always know where to find them
2. Stuff socks in shoes to save space and protect your footwear from being squashed
3. Keep your toiletry bag on top – it’s the last and first thing you’ll need
