One morning, in Paris, a man on a bike stands with a big empty shoulder bag, heading to, seemingly, his routine Saturday shopping tour. The bag is empty. It’s folded around the man’s body like another item of clothe, like a jacket, drawing perfectly the silhouette of the man’s body.
The LAR bags are conceived to use (or to wear) even when carrying basically nothing. These bags are a prefect fit for carrying comfortably a whole day of working tools and material while leaving the option, for example, for a spontaneous grocery shopping at the end of the day, or to be used as a travel bag for a few days trip. This is a big bag that becomes completely flat when is empty, an extension of the urban craft(wo)man whose routine requires daily walking or biking great distances.
The LAR bag is an everyday, lifelong, beautiful working tool that allows one to use it on a daily basis, without foreseeing a possible working material shopping or any other extraordinary event.
