“Jack-of-all-trades”. That is one way to summarise the bag we are about to present. One part art, one part utility and the other integral part is aesthetic. Most of you are probably aware of this Issey Miyake Prism Rainbow Tote, but this “Facet” bag by an artist called Yingxi Zhou can only be best described as the “final evolution”, if you may, in Pokemon terms.
Using traditional origami techniques, Maryland-based designer Yingxi Zhou creates this line of bags called ‘Facet,’ resembling a folded piece of wood transformed into a bag. The angular structures in this bag series take inspiration from traditional origami forms as well. In addition to the sleek design, the bag is malleable and can be folded into more economical forms for storage and shipping. It can even be folded into a storage box. Some pieces can be broken down and folded into smaller forms while some can be folded to lie flat. Pretty nifty if you ask us.
