In the 4th iteration of objects connecting digital and physical design, we present a collaboration between conceptual design studio ZEITGUISED (D/Berlin)and bagdesigner Toshiki Yagisawa and his bag design label X-Magazine (JP/Tokyo).

The project combines the aspects of current 3d manufacturing methods and japanese craft with both ZEITGUISEDs and Toshikis design language.

X-Magazines’ popular stylish woven bags, durable and transmissive at the same time, were treated with a bespoke ZEITGUISED design algorithm. The algorithm is modeled after a process that defines a design language rather than making conventional design decision. Every shape produced by the algorithm is unique and unpredictable, yet visibly part of the same formal universe The shapes are used to spatially cut through the bags at their bottom, and a transparent foil replaces the cutout to serve as a window into the bags contents, upending the notion that the bag is there to hold your belongings securely and is hiding them from plain sight.

Each bag is handmade in Japan and has a numbered design, with a unique shamanistic charm (the individual shape as 3D print) dangling from the coloured leather handles.

Available in 5 color schemes.

X MAGAZINE

X MAGAZINE is a bag brand based on the open source design concept established by a bag designer TOSHIKI YAGISAWA(JP).Its logo was designed by M/M(PARIS) who are close friends of TOSHIKI. The bags are handmade in Japan and have introduced as a pop-up store at J.W ANDERSON WORKSHOP in London. The brand claims international success with other collaborators as well. 

A part of the profit from this project is used as the cultural revitalization of Fukushima by being contributed to the HAJIMARI ART CENTER in Fukushima. This museum was established after the Great East Japan Earthquake and is dedicated to Art Brut.
