Orishiki, The Ingenious Geometric Bag By Naoki Kawamoto

Orishiki is a single piece carrying device made of triangular shaped segments that can fold, unfold, and wrap up in just a few moves. The principle of Orishiki can be applied to just about any kind of carrying device, from big pieces of luggage, to accessories such women’s handbags and clutches. Also, Orishiki can be multiplied into smaller bags, by having groups of facets that can be detached and folded.

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.
