thibaut guittet : sac

sac/coupe folded as a bag all images are photographed by véronique huygue

questioning the basic form and properties of a bag, industrial design thibaut guittet has designed sac+, a collection of pieces that explore the object’s sustainability and function without breaking its efficiency. each sac has its own use while minimizing the amount of packing the consumer brings back home. all prototypes have been hand made in cotton fabric, leather and polyester by emeline raphanaud.  

sac/coupe folded as a bag

sac/coupe : this object is made to carry delicate fruits. using a folding system which references japanese origami, the bag can be transformed in a bowl at home, to present fruits on the table.

cabas/cagette : is structured as a storage crate for vegetables. the principle is to transport without packing, and to store without unpacking. the bag and its variants are designed to eliminate intermediate packages during transport.
