Ordinary utensils and archetypal designs get a new interpretation and are, without denying their original form, being extended with new functions.
The series Zak are based on an ordinary object in its original function (carrying / storing) and form, but made of an exceptional material (leather). One of the most archetypal and useful utensils of our times, the carrier bag (in Flemish dialect called ‘zak’), is reformed to last as durable furniture.
For the wardrobe unit Zak n°4 Casimir used the sports bag in an upright position. On the one hand, this causes its resemblance with the camping closet, used to temporarily store clothes on location. On the other hand, it makes Zak n°4 far easier to use and more accessible than the usual camping closet with a zipper on the front. Zak n°4 has zippers on both sides, like on a sports bag. Zak n°4 is more solid, durable, practical and less mobile than the camping version.
Zak n°4 needs to be filled and used to get its unique form, its unique design.
