‘Orishiki’ is a hybrid word composed of ‘Ori ‘, taken from Origami, Japanese paper-folding art, and ‘Shiki’ taken from 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 structures, constructed of triangular segments which can be folded like origami, and can wrap things like furoshiki.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
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 differing 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 reflects all surrounding lights gracefully.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The geometric bag is not only idiosyncratic in its appearance but also in its highly specialised production process. The unique process can be applied to just about any productions without losing its unique product identity. The hand bag is a just one of example, there is more application of possibility for other carrying case and packages. You just need put stuff into the bag and fold the bag, the gab start to close automatically. That is like a magic.’
