UPPTÄCKA, the cabin bag with accompanying laptop bag, was developed by designer siblings Knut Hagberg and Marianne Hagberg. They came to IKEA in 1979 and made many trips around the world in their 41 years of working together in the design department.
Knut and Marianne always approached every function with great creativity, and for decades they were some of the most productive designers at IKEA. In 2005, they used their experience from many long trips for IKEA to develop a cabin bag on wheels, with an accompanying laptop bag. The laptop bag had a shoulder strap, and could also be slipped onto the cabin bag’s locking telescopic handle. Both bags had a host of practical features that were highly appreciated by customers.
The UPPTÄCKA cabin/laptop bag was part of a whole series of travel storage products at IKEA. UPPTÄCKA was nominated for The International Design Yearbook and appeared in the 2007 IKEA catalogue.
