Packing made perfect A frequent flyer with a love for design and order, Anne Gunnœs is the brain behind PicPac – a packing concept designed to make travelling a little easier. By Maya Acharya | Photos: PicPac

The idea for PicPac first occurred to Gunnœs when she was living and working in Brussels, a European hub of travellers. “I was out and about travelling a lot and felt a real need for some structure in my luggage. In the end I decided that I should take matters into my own hands, and collaborated with design company WORK to develop PicPac.” PicPac is an ongoing collection consisting of ShuPac – a travel pouch that separates your shoes from your clothes; and ZipPac– a pouch that keeps your clothes and accessories or-

ganised and compressed while travelling. The ‘pacs’ come in grey or the more popular ‘spicy orange’. Gunnœs says that the stylish design is inspired by Nordic minimalism and natural colours. This August will also see the anticipated launch of ShirtPac. Since Gunnœs launched her products a year ago, she has been moving ahead nicely with her business and happy customers. In addition to its online shop, PicPac also delivers to Norwegian design shop Pur Norsk AS in Oslo. “Companies and other organisations have

chosen PicPac as a gift for their employees or business partners,” says Gunnœs. “The great thing about PicPac is that it’s an international product for an international market – a product that appeals to both men and women and is perfect for both business and pleasure.”
