Unit Portables: Functional, modernist design and sleek silhouettes.
Stockholm’s Unit Portables is the brainchild of a group of likeminded individuals educated in product, fashion and technology design. Founder Andreas Ehde and his team of creatives designed a modest range of modular bags for the modern traveler, striving to make the ideal bag for practical, organized mobility.
Unit Portables is based on a clever numerical system where each unit has its own number. A unit is by definition any bag, pouch or other object within the Unit Portables range.
“All the main Unit Portables bags are designed with a unique system with strips with loops. The strips are sewn on the outside and inside of the bag. Thanks to poppers on the back of all smaller Units, they can easily be attached to the main Unit allowing you to customize your bag according to your specific taste and needs. That’s the beauty of Unit Portables!” – Unit Portables
Taking a typically Scandinavian approach to design, the bags are decisively minimalist throughout. This purpose-driven approach reduces weight and overall footprint while maintaing a cohesive aesthetic throughout the line. The design team behind Unit Portables see their products as a solution to “fill the gap between boring computer bags and snobbish fashion notebook bags.”
