5 Minutes With:
Jan Roosen, Co-Founder Horizn Studios

What is your main focus at Horizn Studios right now?

Getting the next collection into our shops for Summer - we’re very excited to present new styles and colours for this season so watch this space - and overseeing the first round of production for our Cabin Trolley in time for September, so there’s a lot to look forward to.

Which Trolley feature can you not wait to use?

The removable battery, which will put an end to hunting down and fighting over power outlets at airports. Also the state-of-the-art 360° spinner wheels - finally a trolley that’s smooth, silent and sturdy across all terrains!

How is the Horizn Guard Card working out for you?

I don’t really notice it at all because it’s so unobtrusive, and I’m not a person to lose my bag anyway - but I must admit that having it watch over my belongings has been very comforting, whether I’m just going about my daily business in the city or somewhere far away on vacation.
