The Principal Briefcase by Dinand Stufkens

Home > Winners > #30386


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
The Principal

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Briefcase

INSPIRATION:
The surprising usage of conveyor belt is special because of its unique character (each bag by the wear of the conveyor has its own pattern of scars and smudges) and special because it is all handmade (craftsmanship). Likeable because we extend the life of conveyor belts (up cycling) and deliver products with long durability.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
KAZMOK develops products made from used conveyor belt. The material is strong, very durable, and unique in terms of colour and pattern. KAZMOK already consists of a range of briefcases, trolleys, shopping and laptop bags, and accessories like iPad sleeves and belts.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
-

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
Amsterdam 2010

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The basic material for all our designs is used conveyor belt (an industrial waste material). The conveyor had a previous function in e.g. the food, agriculture or transport industry. Our designs are a good example of up cycling. The designing of prototyping is done in Amsterdam (The Netherlands). The production takes place in the Czech Republic.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
420 x 280 x 130 mm

TAGS:
Briefcase superuse reuse bag conveyor belt

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
-

CHALLENGE:
Because we are using a different material –‘the new leather’- to develop bags and accessories, we had to start from scratch. Nobody had any experience with cutting and stitching of conveyor. Furthermore KAZMOk also had to deal with organization challenges: we had to build up a broad network of companies operating in the conveyor industry. These companies are responsible for the supply of the used conveyor belts. Prior to the production process, the belts need to be cleaned. KAZMOK makes use of a sheltered workshop. The production is conducted in Czech Republic (due to craftsmanship).
