Bag Paper Model

Gym bag meet Shower Bag

Designed for the gym/sports/dance enthusiasts.

A shower bag which users can detach from the backpack to avoid having to bring your entire backpack and risking getting your entire backpack wet. Also, the detachable backpack is a convenient method of carrying user’s shower item instead of having to carry a separate bag.




Materials used: Paper, Zips

Attachment methods: Taping, Sewing, Gluing

Began by first dissecting the bag into different layers to figure out how to attach them together.

A difficulty I faced was that the size of the backpack is quite big, one sheet of paper will not be able to cover the entire backpack thus having to split it into two sections instead.

The next challenge was attaching the zippers. Especially for the shower bag, the curved layout was tedious to craft. Because of the odd shape, it did not stick well, therefore, I had to sew instead.

I also prepared various pockets within the bag based on the size of my own items; e.g. shampoo/soap bottles, toothbrush, clothes.

Final Product

A chic black gym bag with a detachable shower bag.



A Phone Dock – A Chair For Your Phone

Phone Dock which is retractable (that allows for adjusting the height to your preference).

Sketch 1

In my first sketch, the form that I came up with resembled a chair. Hence, I decided to create a chair for your Phone.

After consultation, I was informed to add more curvature to my form. I agreed with this comment as the form did appear very cuboid.

Sketch 2

With the feedback, I added more curves to my form.

During class, I began experimenting with creating this form using foam. I decided to break it up into different parts, and combining them together.

Final Sketch

After experimenting with the foam, I figured that I could push it even further and go with more curvature to resemble a chair.
