My prefer object comes from graphic and nature, so I started with the idea to transform my favorite flower (Magnolia flower) with some graphical lines.
These are linea where any details is created like a structure with a touch of modernity and innovation that keep it unique.
Even the shadow that everyday will arrive on the flower that precede the darkness of the night, keep you in the middle of the way.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
My Expandable Briefcase is a link from a daily object with a design object.
Two objects in one.
The first is a comfortable briefcase where you can fill it with everything for daily use, as daily tools you need; the second one is the shell the convey something graphical, the pattern that represent a Magnolia Flower with lines and spaces; and the shadow that give us the idea of the running time with the darkness that cover the Magnolia flower before the night.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The expandable briefcase is a normal briefcase with the sides that with a zipper became larger and carry more objects.
It is important to understand that the object is a daily object with an important graphical pattern.
PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The Project started in September 2016 and finished in October 2016 and it was exhibited in TFWA - Cannes France
FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Fashion, Apparel and Garment Design
PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Cotton Coated with PVC and printed with inkjet printer; the details are in calf leather.
SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
I started to take a look on different websites of graphical and I thought that the lines combine one with the others can create object different object.
So I started to try to draw some lines together to represent a flower.
I found this pattern to represent the Magnolia Flower.
When I found my ideal pattern I glimpsed behind me the sunset so I saw the darkness approaching; for this reason I added the shadow on the pattern.
I sent the pattern create with a program on the pc to the printer.
I decided to print on a base of cotton with a coated in PVC with a grain.
This decision was taken because I thought that the PVC can protect personal tools but the cotton inside gives a natural aspect.
I decided to use an inkjet printer because it is an easy method for reach immediately the aim so I proceed with this method.
I tried to do different tests to find the right shades to better represent the sunset on the Magnolia flower.
In the meantime I thought to create a daily object for a man so I thought to a briefcase but expandable to give one 'plus' in a normal object.
So i started to draw different kind of briefcase, after several days and several tests with the pattern maker.
So I convey my idea to the pattern maker in the way we can create the right object.
After some days I reached my M'AGNOLIA.
