Life in the Fast Lane

A perfect gift for the man about town, this one-of-a-kind briefcase is not for those who drive in the slow lane. The aluminum case, created by artist Tripp Gregson, gets its dose of color and modern iconography from lawfully salvaged traffic signs. Interior organizer and file pockets, combination locks, a laptop compartment and carrying strap get you to the office and back, while its unique exterior make this briefcase anything but pedestrian. Made in China. The veneer work is done in North Carolina. Each piece is one of a kind and will vary.

Tripp Gregson builds traditional and artistic furniture and accessories from vintage materials and objects. He calls his work "Retro Nouveau," because antique wood, hardware, old signs, doors and other found objects are utilized in the construction.

His friends think of him as a partially reformed packrat, but far afield from the salvage yard, his artistic work conveys a fun, capricious energy through new juxtapositions of shape and color.

Recently his "Jazz Series" furniture pieces utilizing recycled traffic signs have been featured in art galleries and magazines across the United States.

    Comments about Recycled Street Sign Briefcase:

    Didn't like how the numbers were right in the middle - needed to be off to look more authentic. Would have preferred a picture sign over just numbers on each side. With just numbers, it was hard to tell that they were old street signs, which was the whole purpose. We really liked those pictured in the catalog, not the one received.

      Comments about Recycled Street Sign Briefcase:

      Totally the best briefcase for a construction worker ever. I've bought many cases over the years, I have a good feeling I will never have to replace this one. Its so durable, and well made, my husband can't get enough of it. The features inside are worthy of a high end briefcase, with pockets for everything you could need.The one of a kind design is quite a conversation starter.
