The design proces
Defining a briefing
What is it you want to solve, make, invent or do and what are your core principles?
Tailoring for the user / consumer
For whom are we doing this and why would it be interesting to design something new? Either it is for a bird, a group, a community. It is always important to know for whom the design will be made and what the added value of the design will be.

Transdiep, the narrow wardrobe
Transdiep is a narrow wardrobe, high on its legs. Made with all quality materials that are sourced in a small and transparent supply chain. The smart use of diagonal hangers makes it almost half the depth of a regular wardrobe and a practical solution for urban apartments and hotels. The foldable sliding door makes the design playful and light and hints towards the Japanese origami techniques.

Transform, shape and fold this backpack. Make it big when you need to, keep it small when you want to. This backpack is made from Dutch textile waste and lined with a transformable material. No velcro, zippers or buckles needed.
How It Works / Usability
Transform a compact 12 liter backpack to a 40 liter one. How? The backside of the backpack is lined with a material that has lead-like qualities. This material can be folded and shaped continuously and in contrary to actual lead it is very lightweight.
Can be compact and still fits odd shaped items like: Tripods, baguettes, skateboards.
No vulnerabilities as: velcro, zippers or buckles
There is a small opening and compartment in the middle of the backpack for fast access items. With our unique foldable closing system we made this hard to open for someone with bad intentions, but easy to open when you know the trick.
There is a compartment for laptops / papers
