This Bag inspired by common forms and spaces in minimal modern architecture. Spaces created through combination and continuation of simple surfaces and elements which apart from being visually independent, while keeping their unity. Moving the surfaces from the common borders, creates a different visual quality intensified by the shadows created. In this project, the side surfaces have been replaced by front ones. Among other considerations in this project, has been the attempt to maintain the basic forms in order to reach the maximum internal capacity. Using leathers with old appearance and antique elements on them has been an attempt to reduce and balance its industrial modern spirit.

This bag is a part of a project called "the deep series". The research phase started by visual research, mostly in contemporary architectural forms and spaces through rapid paper models and afterwards different types of materials, patterns and assembling techniques were tested to achieve the desired structure.
The main challenges in this project were maintaining the simplicity of the design, keeping the bag light and at the same time firm, and being functional while having a unique style.
