The opportunities of reinterpretation of the iconic LV Bucket bag lead us to refl ect on its condition as a generic container.
The combination of a series of formal operations (extrusion, distortion, peeling and slicing) and the selection of materials, created a family of differentiated bags, hybrid crossings between traditional bag typologies, i.e. pochette and clutch, and the bucket.
Clustering the bags generated a series of possible relations between the different buckets, the containers and the contained, which allowed for its parts to be interchangeable under one coherent composition.
The possibility of different combinations of containers, buckets, triggers a playful and interactive relationship with the user, allowing for a customization of the bucket’s form and program to each occasion.Architect: Zaha Hadid Architects Design: Zaha Hadid and Patrik Schumacher Project Designer: Ana M.
