Before and After: A Trunk Transformation

This trunk, called the Casulo, which means cocoon in Portuguese, opens to reveal something pretty, well, brilliant. Can you guess what it is? I'll give you a hint: it's perfect for people who are always on the go. To find out what's inside, .

A room! The Casulo, which was designed by two Danish students at the Köln International School of Design, is still in its prototype phase, but it's already causing a hullabaloo. Inside the box lies a "bed, bookcase, filing cabinets, stools a desk, a small cabinet, three stool chairs, an armoir, a bed (with mattress), and a shelving unit, and "the suitcase itself becomes a closet thanks to magnetic clothes hangers." All of these furnishings can be unpacked by just one person in seven minutes. And, since the designers eliminated the need for Styrofoam packing, it is environmentally friendly as well as space friendly. Bachelors, college kids, and nomads have just met their match!

WOW! Though i am not too crazy about the colors, it is a prototype at this point, but I am sure this will be something people will scoop up once available. Great Idea!
