Designed and developed in New Zealand, the Freebase is a new way of living, working and moving. With 3 separate hinging compartments to organise travel, work and personal items, the design is the result of over 10 years of development.

Paul Barmes, inventor, and founder of Barmes Design says, “The timing for our U.S. patent to be granted could not have come at a better time as we are now ready to release our Freebase to a global market. It is extremely gratifying the patent office has identified the uniqueness of our design and that it is much more than a travel case.

Freebase provides the ability to have those important pieces at your fingertips, with quick and easy access, safely and securely, all whilst on the move. It provides people with the ultimate in mobility and flexibility. The uniqueness of Freebase has resulted in a patent being granted in the USA, with other countries at the patent pending stage.”
