The BétaVersion and Dombon-a-tanya design teams worked together on this Box Couture project creating four different bags, a men’s bag, a women’s bag, a picnic case and a laptop bag.
They asked themselves the question: where can design and fashion, systematization and ornamentation meet? And from which point on do the two systems amplify each other and don’t compete anymore? Their answer was a design study. A study, which transforms common human feelings, reactions and attributes into an object. It analyses the human being itself, as an emotional and rational creature in consideration of age and sex. It takes old fashioned habits as a basic, which are characteristic to all of us. It examines common thesis and from these thesis the systems of design, attitude and usage of the objects will become obvious.
From these principles four different bags were born. The men’s bag, the women’s bag, the picnic case and the school bag. All of them have a clear-out shape with fine and simple solutions, made of pitted raw wood blocks with tanned leather stripes.
