I/M/D students present 'Future Bags' in Tassenmuseum Hendrikje

The ‘Future Bags’ exhibition will be held from 17 April through 29 July 2018 at The Museum of Bags and Purses in Amsterdam. To create this show, a group of young designers from the Interactive / Media / Design programme of the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague (KABK) were assigned to design ‘the bag of the future’.

To achieve this, the students had to consider new forms of function, interaction and social identity. What new materials and technologies would be available by the year 2050? Although natural and eco-friendly plastics are commonly used today, the future is sure to offer new alternatives. Will hyperconnectivity mean the disappearance of bags altogether? Will our bodies themselves become ‘the bag’? Visitors to ‘Future Bags’ will get an incredible glimpse into the future as based on drawings, video clips, research into materials, and prototypes.
