Many of the suitcases that are part of the FENIX collection tell a story about their owner. Leny’s red suitcase is one of them. Rotterdam-based illustrator Soña Lee depicted the love story of the trolley suitcase in four drawings.

Leny's koffer

Leny (57) and Kees (60) met in 2007 and instantly fell in love. However, there was one obstacle: Kees lives in Maastricht and Leny in Rotterdam. The train journey between the two cities takes almost three hours. With her bright red suitcase, Leny has been travelling to see her sweetheart every other weekend for 14 years.

Suitcases wanted!

FENIX is looking for suitcases – a huge number of suitcases. These cases will be the building blocks for a large maze you will be able to walk through when FENIX opens. Do you have a case that tells a story?
