This backpack by well-known German designer Saskia Diez is made of DuPont™ Tyvek®, a synthetic paper that is extremely light but at the same time robust. A silk-screen printing technique was used on the surface of the material to achieve the light grey colour. The backpack features a grey-silver drawstring on the top which is attached to each side of the bottom. It is waterproof, recyclable and tearproof.
A collaborative project between Saskia and Stefan Diez, the »Papier« series is an experiment in revising the classical typology: the two designers have pointed out the basic requirements to a travel bag – durability, protection and light weight – and sought for an appropriate material other than the traditional choices of leather and reinforced textiles. »Papier« won the German Designpreis 2010.
