A modular bag inspired by seeds and pods.

Project partners: Hermès

The aim of this project was to experiment with form and materials to design a new way of transporting one's belongings when travelling. By considering what objects we carry on a daily basis, the concept of a modular and adaptable bag was developed.

Badiane consists of six modular pockets that protect and carry essential daily belongings. Each pocket perfectly takes the shape of the objects inside it. The six pockets are designed for a purse keys, mobile phone, camera, pocket diary and a book.

The handbag adapts to different types of excursions; you attach each pocket according to what you need.
