Orishiki Hand Bag (Clutch Bag) by Naoki Kawamoto
2011 - 2012, Platinum A'
Inspiration
“Orishiki” is a hybrid word composed of “Ori ”, taken f rom Origami, Japanese paper-folding art, and “Shiki ” taken f rom Furoshiki, Japanese traditional wrapping cloth which is large enough to wrap and transport goods and gifts, as well as wearing them as scarves. “ORISHIKI” is a new carrying device consisting of a single piece of two dimensional structure, constructed of triangular segments which can be folded like origami, and can wrap things like furoshiki.
Creativity
Origami-like folds, a single structure consisting of triangular segments, but wraps things like apple sauce. There are new geometric folding surface became a solid calling case. The Clutch bag’s behaviour is completely differ from other any case and opening and closing movements is quite innovative way to use. That is made up of several triangle segments and those each segment edge is define each next segments direction and position. Magnets organise the unimpeded closing behavior. From the functions, the looks like a crystal that reflect all surrounding lights gracefully.
Design Challenges
Budget is biggest wall because I developed alone. The product need test a lot but rapid prototype is very expensive for me.
Production Technology
To use Additive Manufacturing process and hand assembling. Inward frame> Polyamide (SLS:Selective Laser Sintering) Hinge > Polypropylene unwoven fabric Surface > Acrylic resin
