beijing design week: casper notenboom develops vacuum-sealable bags for bulky goods

 

beijing design week 2016: casper notenboom presents a collection of bags informed by the way he noticed some chinese residents carrying, packaging and transporting their belongings. the ‘increase decrease’ project is the result of notenboom’s ongoing interest in traveling and mobile units — not only as physical devices, but also as a methods of construction. four backpacks based on vacuum and heat sealing techniques are able to adapt to the shape of their content, increasing functionality by easily accommodating even the bulkiest of goods.

presented as part of baitasi remade — one of the core programs of beijing design week 2016notenboom’s ‘increase decrease’ collection explores the possibilities of both growing and shrinking your bag based on the types of objects you wish to carry. ‘modern day life is making us increasingly more mobile,’ the designer says. ‘this also means that more is demanded of our adaptability and flexibility. people that are traveling a lot benefit from a bag that adapts to its contents, but also from organizing their belongings. by fixating belongings and placing them in your bag you can create a certain peace and stability in a constantly changing environment.’

the four backpacks each accommodate articles and objects of all sizes. the bags’ large inner volumes can host bulky items of various dimensions, easily fitting inside huge transparent spaces and expansive fabric areas. the carefully chosen material elements of the wearables then allow users to vacuum out the unused space, compressing the bags into portable and functional containers for transport.   

 

‘the contents of a bag are the possessions of a specific moment,’ notenboom continues. ‘in response to your destination, you categorize and arrange these items. experiences, emotions but also objects are things that you collect while traveling and want to cherish and take along with you. just as a house a bag is a place where you can storage and secure your belongings.’
