Working on the road is easier than ever. Between ultralight laptops, portable backup power, and constantly available wireless connectivity, people can literally get stuff done for days without ever seeing a conventional office. Still, we feel having a semi-private portable workspace is something everyone can appreciate. That’s exactly what La Fonction No 1 brings to modern nomads of the world.
An erstwhile stylish but normal-looking laptop bag, the entire thing can unfold into a mobile cubicle of sorts, surrounding your laptop with tiny walls to give it a little privacy. It also adds a soft rest on the bottom that should be gentler on your wrists than table surfaces, along with a series of storage pouches on the inner side of the privacy flaps.
The La Fonction No 1 is constructed with leather, textile lining, and Italian fabrics, making for a classy accessory befitting stylish modern nomads. It can hold a 15-inch computer, with varying-sized integrated pouches to hold all sorts of gear and a detachable external pocket. Each one is handmade at a workshop in Cevennes, so it’s premium in both material and construction.
Seriously, the La Fonction No 1 is the prettiest solution of its kind I’ve ever seen. Retailing at €840, though, it’s also seriously expensive, so we guess only wealthy stylish modern nomads need apply.
