"What if the new wave of young professionals were homeless?

"Millennials are the first generation to see the world through an internet lens, giving them a shared, global culture and greater desire of distant locations from a young age."

Observations >>

Due to the pandemic, the majority of the world's professional affairs moved onto a virtual platform. Telecommuting has changed our entire workflow, and will greatly influence our work habits moving toward the future.

Due to limited freedom, life priorities have shifted. Once free, we are going out to explore

a whole new world.

Sense of Freedom

Because of our seamless integration of digital tools and newfound freedom, intentional co-living spaces and temporary micro-living spaces facilitate openness and collaboration, social networking, and the sharing economy.

Openness & Collaboration

Millennials + Pandemic Positive = Modern Nomads

The new class of young professionals that work on the go.

The Capsule Pack consists of a two-part system. The modular system is designed to be as flexible as your schedule to support all of your adventures whether it's a year-round trip or a weekend away.

Working on the go means professionals can take short trips between their longer travel periods. The sling bag can be detached and adequately stores essentials for a short time away.

During a nomad's longer travels, the two 

bags connect into one to provide enough

storage for all necessities needed to curate

a comfortable "home base". Reinforced by

highly-durable cobra buckles to ensure the

two are inseparable.
