Amazing Wire Briefcase by Maria Hees

text and image roberto voorbij

This amazing wire briefcase is part of the current presentation of the Amsterdam Stedelijk Musem design collection. This must have designer briefcase is however just a prototype. Really love how this – dating from 1978 – briefcase as well looks like a polygon computer model and can also be interpreted as an art piece that deals with public space, privacy, transparency and safety.

I can highly recommend this permanent design exhibit, with works by Gerrit Rietveld, Michel de Klerk, Wim Crouwel and Marcel Wanders among others.

    I agree. it’s pretty amazing stuff for all the reasons you mention. I’m thinking of X-rays at airports and so on. I’ve also seen transparent backpacks around. So there is definitely a theme there than can be mined for thoughts about current society.
