Carry-on backpack 

100% cotton multipocket backpack specifically sized to be a carry-on baggage. There are as much pockets as needed during a trip the way items and papers (boarding pass, passport, cell phone, metro card/airtrain, custom declaration form) are handy. Its deliberately rough look underscores the main qualities: strength and durability but with an eye on streetwear style.

100% breathable cotton

One pocket per every item

X the double-face backpack 

Why do backpacks have one side to be shown and one to be covered by our backs? What if we make a double-face backpack with the 2 sides in different styles and colors? That’s the idea behind X: a black serious face matching business attire during weekdays and a red edgy one on the flip side.

Practical aspects are obviously taken into account, this means both sides are provided with tablet size pockets and the backpack itself is extensible with a zipper.

Sandals with some lowbrow philosophy attached

I feel like I’d like to make some prototypes of sandals, or other kinds of women shoes for what matter. I can’t wait to start using the 3D printer for some cool new projects. Doing quick sketches and renderings is an easy relaxing task – and it’s perfectly fine- but that’s just drawing which is the very early phase of designing. Don’t get me wrong, some sketches on Instagram are literally masterpieces worth being exposed in art galleries, nonetheless, from a designer point of view when we stop at inking some paper without going deeper into the project tackling all the structural and ergonomic issues, we are basically stating our intentions without following up. Taking the next step is far more fascinating to me, getting our hands dirty with clay, cutting, rounding edges, gluing, polishing and painting: That’s the real meaning of design!

Admittedly I am guilty of cutting short the early stage to jump to modelling (the act of making three-dimensional models, no catwalks involved) and it is not exactly by the book because every phase of the process deserves its attention, but I can’t help it, I want to transform my ideas into tangible objects as soon as possible. In my opinion a physical model is worth a thousand drawings, what do you think guys? Do you indulge in pencil and Pantone? If you’re designers feel free to shere your thoughts.

Zenith the wooden coffee pot 

Zenith’s birth was something like a bet, the idea was to make a coffee pot out of wood,  which is not exactly a matter someone would use to be heated on a stove. The upper wood half is fastened to the boiling chamber with other coupling metal rings and washers that contribute to the dissipation of heat.
