Keyring crafted in stainless steel.
VOYAGE - Ingenious design from Georg Jensen brings tranquillity to the stress of travel.
UK designer Michael Young’s international career means he’s always travelling. He shares the ‘airport panic’ all men recognise: that uncertain feeling which comes with having to keep passport, tickets, boarding pass and immigration papers all in one secure and convenient place. His stainless steel and black ABS passport holder brings tranquillity to travel by keeping everything to hand – in one hand! Its sleek design has space for all the necessary documents, plus room for a pen, as well credit cards, so there’s no need to also juggle a wallet.
The passport holder forms part of Young’s travel accessory concept called VOYAGE. It is accompanied by a key-ring, which is also the result of the designer’s quest for an elegant and functional solution to a perennial problem. Its arresting looks, in stainless steel with a robust black PUR rubber strap, complement its practicality. Key-fumbling, another curse of the tired or hassled traveller, is eliminated. Each key is held separately, so you can identify them at a glance.
Lost luggage is perhaps the major cause of travel stress. The third travel accessory in the VOYAGE concept is the all-important luggage tag. Smart thinking, ease of use and elegance are all combined in its stainless steel design. The black polycarbonate cap screws securely in place the metal tube that holds the name and address tag.
The VOYAGE travel accessories connect directly to Georg Jensen’s bold and innovative approach to design. These three contemporary solutions to traditional design challenges are sold individually.
