Lanana by Ryszard Rychlicki


Polish Design Season: Polish design student Ryszard Rychlicki has designed a shopping bag made of folded recycled paper.

Called Lanana, the bag is designed for customers to take newly-bought clothing home in.

It can be stored flat and pulled into shape with a string between the bottom corners.

Rychlicki designed the bag as part of his architecture and design degree at the Academy of Fine Arts in Poznan.

    i like the concept in principle but am undecided asto whether the final aesthetic agrees with my sensibilities. nonetheless it is clever and i appreciate its cleverness.

    How do you put stuff in it?
    It looks pretty, but it’s completely impractical.
    Lack of waterproofness is a major issue too. Absolutely bonkers.
    Paper bags work far better and use less resources.

    it looks really eco friendly….but im concern that it’s not gonna hold anything, besides it will screw that shape
