MCA Tote Bag 2018

serigrafia su cotone giallo, tessuto nero impermeabile, bottoni automatici
dimensioni: chiusa 40 x 43cm, aperta 40 x 63cm

In collaborazione con Barbara Bongiana

MCA tote bag è stata presentata in occasione dell’apertura della 16. Mostra Internazionale di Architettura, Freespace. La borsa nasce dalla collaborazione con l’architetto Matteo Cainer ed è stata disegnata considerando il suo approccio e la sua filosofia all’architettura. Può essere indossata chiusa, con una tasca esterna porta oggetti o completamente aperta e quindi più capiente. E’ completamente cucita e serigrafata a mano ed è composta da due diversi tessuti, uno interno nero e impermeabile e uno esterno giallo più spesso e in cotone serigrafato. Le maniglie, anche queste in doppio tessuto sono state specificatamente disegnate per essere meglio indossate quando la borsa è al massimo della sua capienza. All’interno una piccola tasca porta cellulare o chiavi.

 

 

MCA Tote Bag 2018

yellow silk-screened cloth, black impermeable fabric, rivet buttons
dimensions: closed 40 x 43cm, opened 40 x 63cm

In collaboration with Barbara Bongiana

The new MCA tote bag, launched during the vernissage of the 16th International Architecture Venice Biennale, Freespace, is the result of a close collaboration with architect Matteo Cainer:
the bag has been designed considering his approach and design philosophy.
The result is a stylish and colourful flexible bag that also conveys the core concepts of tension between multidisciplinary clusters within the work and philosophy of the office. The bag can be worn closed, creating an external pocket to insert rolls, drawing tools or simply a newspaper, or completely open, transforming it into a large bag with more capacity.
The bag itself has been entirely handmade, from the sewing to the work of the artist who silk-screened the artwork on every bag. It is composed of two fabrics, an interior impermeable black material to protect the contents and an external more resilient and thicker yellow fabric with the silk-screened artwork, resulting in a very high-quality product.
Another important feature is the handles, also in double-layer fabric, which have been specifically designed to be wider for greater comfort when the bag reaches its full capacity. Inside there is a pocket for mobile phones or keys.
