ST3 - A suitcase for busking with built-in amplifier that morphs into a street stage.
The busking culture - or street performance - is blossoming in Hong Kong, despite the Hong Kong Government considering busking as begging. Pushed to the border of legality, buskers must operate in less than ideal circumstances. On top, the street artists are often doomed to use inappropriate means to transport their equipment. Classic luggage is not only inconvenient and cumbersome, they also fail offer the appropriate protection for the sometimes delicate equipment.
“ST3 - Storage, Street and Stage” is the first bespoke luggage for the busker. First, ST3 provides storage tailored for the equipment of a busker such as the mic stand. Secondly, ST3 is designed to transport the heavy equipment in an easy way through the streets of Hong Kong’s rough urban landscape which is littered with stairs and broken pavements. And finally, in just a few seconds it morphs into a stage that is fully equipped with a light show and amplified sound
ST3 is the first all-rounded solution designed for street musicians to light up the city!
