Why to buy: Horizn Studios is known for continuously pushing the envelope of product innovation. With the launch of Circle One, the brand presents the most planet-friendly luggage. A game-changing innovation, its patented hard shell is unparalleled in its form: 100% plant-based and biodegradable. Proving that sustainability, design and performance are complementary concepts, it's lighter than aluminium, longer-lasting than polycarbonate and eco-friendlier than anything else on the market. Unlike even the most durable hard shells, the shell of the Circle One is engineered to be fully repairable and never see a landfill. Circle One also features the most environmentally-friendly components: seed and nutshell-infused handles to minimise the use of non-renewable resources. The tubes are made of magnesium rather than aluminium, the sourcing and production of which makes for a far smaller environmental footprint as well as recycled lining and zippers. The Circle One cabin luggage launches as a unique Change-Maker Edition in four translucent colourways.
What we love: As a next generation travel brand, Horizn Studios strives to transform the way people will travel in the future. It's time to get ready for a new era of travel, and to radically commit to the future of our planet. For Horizn Studios, this means to propel forward in a circular economy. With Circle One, the brand is re-thinking the way the luggage industry uses and reuses resources. A leading light in sustainable travel, Circle One pivots towards the only direction possible: planet-friendly luggage that will never see a landfill.
