Maybe those flight delays might not be so miserable if you had a travel bag like this.
This year’s Celebrate Gala, a fundraiser for indie design museum A+D, explores the theme of travel — in style. The museum invited artists and designers to remind us that travel was once equated with glamor and to come up with travel-inspired creations for auction. On show will be “one-of-a-kind carry-ons – suitcases, vintage train cases, modern day satchels, futuristic jet-paks and more, designed by the likes of Karim Rashid, Steven Ehrlich (see his “Baguette” below), Yazdani Studio of Cannon Design, Cristobal Valecillos, BMW DesignworksUSA, Fentress, Frederick Fisher & Partners (see his design, above), Kathryn M. Ireland, Trip Haenisch, and Craig Hodgetts of Hodgetts + Fung. For tickets and information, click here.
