lim sungmook's modibag can be folded into multiple shapes and forms

 

 

korean designer lim sungmook has developed ‘modibag’, a bag that can be transformed into many different shapes and forms. motivated by wrapping clothes and just like LEGO, users can customize it freely, depending on their taste and the objects they want to carry inside. the project started with one word: platform which encompasses infinite potential as well as bigger value.

lim sungmook called it ‘modibag’, creating wordplay between ‘modify’ and ‘bag’, suiting it perfectly because of its adjustable characteristics. modifiable in size, shape, and form to embrace one’s taste, ‘modibag’ is composed of a wooden canvas covered in leather that can be weaved together to create the different configurations.
