Horizn Studios Luggage
Words bySUITCASE Magazine
Studios’ luggage range embodies the belief that each
journey should leave the world a better place. The brand’s tale
began in 2015, when, with a shared vision to redefine travel for
the modern world, founders Stefan Holwe and Jan Roosen joined
forces. Two like-minded individuals with a passion for design and
endless wanderlust, the duo’s dreams took off. Today, Horizn Studios
seamlessly blends style, sustainability and cutting-edge
Demonstrating Germany’s engineering prowess, the Berlin-based
brand dropped the world’s first luggage with a removable smart
charger. Artist collaborations with the likes of DJ Seth Troxler
and Nigerian-born, Berlin-based artist Emeka Ogboh followed. In
2019, the company’s unique personalised luggage configuration
landed. Soho House has its own edition, and the full Horizn Studios
range is stocked at Harrods and Selfridges.

Now, the brand is on a quest to implement circular economy
principles while ensuring the longevity of the range. Horizn
Studios already carefully sources recycled materials to produce its
luggage, but the latest iterations take sustainability up a gear.
Case in point? The RE Series, launching in September. Made from 97
per cent recycled polycarbonate, it gives post-consumer waste a new
life in the form of stylish, long-lasting cabin and check-in
luggage. And, of course, the suitcases come with the same lifetime
warranty offered on the entire Horizn Studios line. There are
further exciting innovations on the horizon, too. Next year, the
incredible Circle One is landing – a fully plant-based hard shell
case that’s a material science revolution in its own right.
Ready to unleash your thirst for adventure and find your perfect
companion as you sustainably explore the world? Here’s our wish
list from the brand’s incredible offering.

Every bag you should get from Horizn Studios’ sustainable
luggage line-up

M5 Smart Suitcase, Horizn Studios

The M5 Smart

Meet the smartest sidekick on the plane. Reclaim precious time
as you revel in the freedom of having essentials such as your
laptop tucked into its front pocket and always at your fingertips.
Compact yet capacious, the M5 Smart has a lifetime warranty as well
as a free 100-day trial period, and carries practically everything,
from your chicest outfits (up to five, in fact) to your wildest
dreams (provided they fit into its 37-litre interior). The bag also
has a removable charger, four silent spinner wheels, and smart
interior compartments for easy packing. Oh, and its polycarbonate
hard shell is partially recycled, while the inner lining is fully

The H7 Essential

The case for when you want your luggage choice to speak volumes.
With its sturdy construction and ample space, this steadfast
companion will be the long-haul sanctuary for your clothes, shoes
and cherished possessions, proving that style and sustainability
walk (or should we say “roll”) hand in hand. Like the M5, this
check-in case is built with a partially recycled polycarbonate
hardshell and has a fully recycled interior. It’s also 100 per cent
vegan, and comes in 11 slick matte and glossy colours. Good luck in
narrowing it down to just one…

Re Series, Horizn Studios

The RE Series

Remember how you once loved CDs? Those retro relics have found a
new rhythm. Meet the RE Series, the cabin and check-in luggage duo
made from 97 per cent recycled polycarbonate – that’s post-consumer
waste made up of components including, you guessed it, CDs. This
dazzling duo also features fully recycled interiors, a lifetime
warranty, and will have you spinning right round on smooth-turning
360-degree wheels. And – as with all Horizn Studios suitcases –
they’re equipped with a TSA-approved lock. The series launches in

Gion Backpack

The Gion Backpack Pro

The sleek, daily backpack that will take you from the office to
Olbia and back. Crafted from water-resistant tarpaulin, it’s got
smart compartments for your laptop and other essentials, as well as
a hidden back pocket to hide your travel essentials in. It’s also
super-comfortable, with its padded back and shoulder straps taking
the strain. Available in five nature-inspired colours, the Gion is
tough enough to withstand the bustle of city life but keeps its
impact on the planet gentle.

The SoFo Backpack Travel

Looking for the ultimate panel-loading backpack for your next
adventure? Whether you’re heading off on a weekend trip to Somerset
or planning a longer getaway further afield, the SoFo can be packed
and organised like a normal suitcase but carried as a backpack.
Back-panel opening means that you can access the entire main
compartment without unpacking from the top, while an extra padded
pocket at the rear keeps even larger laptops safe. There are also
extra front and side pockets, creating additional packing space.
The SoFo is made from a fully recycled, water-sealed cotton canvas
that’s both waterproof and heat-resistant, so you can rest assured
that all your stuff will be safe when you’re on the move.
