2 different bag collections made by Camille Rousseau. She is transforming the standard shopping bags into something beautiful and communicative, using them to tell a story. The two bags on the top are for EDF Energy, a sustainable energy company. The second concept is called Transition. She explains the project:

“Dealing with the preconception of this consumer icon, I took the surface of a carrier bag to capture a moment, taking the object as a passing reflection of the city. The ephemeral object becomes a witness of time and space. In selecting details of the city and linking an individual story to each bag, I aim to recreate a stage showing several perspectives of the city. I wanted a physical link between the drawings and the reality. The set itself becomes the city; connecting people to different locations.”

Veggie Bag for your fridge

Keep your mushrooms and other vegetables fresh in the fridge. The re-usable bag is made by the Boston based brand Bruno Super Deluxe. Couple of months ago somebody told me to put a piece of bread in the fridge.

Keep your mushrooms and other vegetables fresh in the fridge. The re-usable bag is made by the Boston based brand Bruno Super Deluxe. Couple of months ago somebody told me to put a piece of bread in the fridge. It will absorb any bad smell. I forgot to tell my family about it and they got more and more irritated of the breadcrumb all over the fridge. It’s probably a better idea to integrate that absorption in a container. With this bag the veggies are saved, but you’ll still have a gust of old food when you open the fridge. Tupperware – Halleluja!
