Bao Bao Issey Miyake and N&R Foldings Distortion Bag

Issey Miyake did it again. The design trendsetter just launched a new bag (co-designed with London/Tokyo based Design studio N&R Foldings) that is so futuristic, your jaw just drops. You have to watch the video below to fully appreciate its ingenuity. The bag, inspired by origami art, enables users to assemble it from a flat form into a 3D functional bag. Called “Distortions”, the bag not only looks incredible, it is also pragmatic for those who travel and want to save space (or just those who collect bags and want to save on closet space).

The bag consists of a series of triangles that give it a cutting-edge design. When you want to fold the bag, you start by folding the edges and securing each fold with a small rod. Within a few folds, and in under a minute, the bag is assembled. The end result is a stunning accessory that is bound to turn heads.

The bag comes in several colors including yellow, white and black and has a black interior and a silver colored clasp. Issey Miyake is marketing the bag through his company Bao Bao.
