Q1. Are all the sizes and patterns same?
Yes, all same sizes and patterns. Depending on how you fold and hold it, you can create a variety of sizes / shapes / styles. If you combine two or more, you can make the lager bag like a backpack or a duffle bag.
Q2. How many bags can be made?
When we have mathematical calculation of patterns, the number of cases is 303,625. Of course, not all are practical bags. But since we have this number of cases, users can create and use them in a new way without guidebook. To allow users to participate, we developed the pattern and applied to MODIBAG.
Q3. Isn’t it hard to make it? How long does it take?
It’s similar to origami and tying your shoelaces. The ones who are use it first take about 40 minutes, and the ones who are familiar with it take about 15 minutes.
Q4. How to make MODIBAG?
Q5. Why did you make it? Where did you get inspired?
When I started this project, I felt problems in too many products are produced and thrown away by trend quickly. So, I want to make the design which can be used for a long time. So I was looking unlimited potential with various contents. That's why I choose the keyword "Platform" for this project.
Bag has features of fashion (which is the most active user participation) and product. So, "A bag acting as a platform" is title in this project.
MODIBAG, compound word for ‘Modify’ and ‘Bag’, has just one size and pattern. But user can modify its size, shape, and form to suit one’s taste by folding and tying.
There are components(strap, strings and guidebook) in the package. So, users just follow the guide book at first time. But if they're used to making, they can make new collections without guide book or video.
Through the project, eventually, I hope contents (bag, tent, space and etc.) are created by users as well as becoming a culture itself.
Q6. MODIBAG 3.0_Nanotex vs MODIBAG 2.0 ?
