DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
EvaTwo, tote bag system

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Tote Bag

INSPIRATION:
Lommer: Love Materials - Meet Requirements. This is our design philosophy based on our love for experimenting with different materials, without being prisoned by their original state and our willing to satisfy every day’s life requirements due to ergonomic and adaptable products. Through our products users get initiated to a unique experience by assembling their bag and choosing different parts to customize the final product in order to create another style combination to suit their mood.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Evatwo is a tote bag system, using unique materials such as E.V.A. foam mixed with rubber for the body of the bag and seatbelts for the straps. It is a self-assembly bag, required no stitching, which the user transforms from a roll to a bag and then applies the color and the length of the straps of her preference. Straps come in two different lengths, short or long, and ten different colors, so every user can create her own combination and become part of the design process through a new experience.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
After an Evatwo is produced, it is being rolled and packaged. In this way the shipping cost is reduced, because of the smaller size. What is more it becomes easier for the retail shops to store them. However, our main goal is to create interactivity between the user and the product, who enters an entertaining process where he un-rolls, assembles by putting together the buttons and creates his own combination by changing the straps.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in April 2015 in Athens, Greece.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Fashion, Apparel and Garment Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The material used for EvaTwo is E.V.A. foam mixed with rubber in 3mm thickness sheets. Every bag is one piece of material and has eighteen pressed buttons which the user puts together in order to transform the main body. Moreover it has eight slits through which passes the belt not only to create the handles but also to reinforce the bottom of the bag. Every strap fastens on the bag with four snaps to keep the same length for every handle. The two ends of the strap snap between them with two pressed buttons, so the user can change it any time. The materials used for the straps are best quality of seat belts and lifting slings, which are durable and soft in touch.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
The bag is received from the user in the form of a packaged roll in dimensions 60cm x 17 cm. The dimensions of the assembled bag are 43cm x 30cm x 12cm. The length of the long strap is 2,70m and 2,48m for short strap and the width is 5cm.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
After numerous tests of samples and collecting feedback from active users, we focused our research on the development and creation of a new, advanced material based on a blend of E.V.A. foam and rubber, which meets the following specifications: non-smell, antistatic, anti-scratching, durable, lightweight, waterproof and soft touch (it has the feeling of velvet). We managed to get to this result with the help of chemical engineers and a factory that believed in our project and produced this material for us.

CHALLENGE:
Our motivation was based on one question: How can we make non-tech products to interact with their users? We believe that a product’s added value is giving to the users the experience of involving. In Evatwo that was achieved by involving the users in the procedure of the product’s integration and by enabling them to combine different parts according to their day to day needs. Moreover it was challenging for us to find alternative materials that could meet the requirements of the project and the suitable way of production.
