Bag 2 is the result of a study of ordinary utensils and archetypal patterns that are interpreted differently without denying their original form, while being given new functions. The Bag series is based on an ordinary object in its function: content/storage and yet made of a noble material, leather. One of the most archetypal and useful utensils of our time, the tote bag, is reformed to last as a durable piece of furniture. Its shape has been retained, reminiscent of the plastic version, with each bag deviating slightly from the perfect model. The quality of the materials and the graceful ageing property of the leather encourage the use of this furniture. The flexibility of the leather also allows the bags to follow the shape of their contents. The bags are hung in an oak frame that can be stacked and filled, transported and filed. The storage unit is based on the idea of filing cabinets used in offices, while the flexibility and durability of leather gives this storage system its poetic dimension. Bag2 is a storage system for 40 high-quality leather checkout bags, which can be free-standing or wall-mounted.
