Despite the recent trend towards urbanites carrying around backpacks, rucksacks, knapsacks, packsacks—or whatever the word du jour—we're inclined to say that most of them fall into one of two categories: heritage/workwear or technical. Very few offer a glimpse of the future, let alone innovation. Enter Dutch design studio Lijmbach, Leeuw & Vormgeving (based in Eindhoven) and their backpack design Solid Gray.
The original run of Solid Gray packs—in gray, naturally—sold out immediately. We are sure the all-white, glossy second series will, too. Strong yet lightweight, Solid Gray is the very first consumer product cut and made from a single sheet of polypropylene block-copolymer, or PP-C for short—a technical plastic that is extremely durable and hard-wearing. And offering maximum carrying comfort and protection, each limited-run Solid Gray backpack is assembled by hand with its own unique serial number.
