on the path of one of his creative-collaborative-spiritual journeys, experimental artist and professional free-thinker, ilan reuben, discovered what he believes to be the backpack of the future, ‘orbis’ by ilanio. the ergonomic packs (available in black, white, red, and clear) meet at the crossroads of design, artistic expression, and human experience.

haven’t heard of reuben? he founded the concept brand ilanio and is the father of many curios projects. YOKE (4-polytopic merkabah), for example, is yoga-meets-bondage with a paradoxically warm center. surprisingly more provocative is OOH BALLOON. fun, fetish, fashion, ski masks, balloons, grinding: it’s a niche idea bound to extremely please a select few.
