Blackhawk Secretary Trunk Is The Air-Stream Of Large Luggage

Because who doesn’t need a 1.8m tall piece of travel luggage clad in aircraft-grade aluminium and capable of carrying the contents of a small apartment?

The Blackhawk Secretary Trunk from Restoration Hardware is a solid hardwood case covered in aircraft aluminium. It’s rounded edges are meant to evoke aeroplane designs from the 1950s. RH is even kind enough to “pre-stress” the aluminium — aka bang the shit out of it with a hammer — to give it a “well-travelled” appearance. It hinges in the middle to open into a small office with storage and space to set a laptop.

I wouldn’t even travel with it — well, I would once, just to see the baggage handlers’ faces — I’d use it as an earthquake-resistant foldable home office. [Restoration Hardware via Gadget Review]
