What most people do in print, Odo Fioravanti achieved in a brilliant form exercise. The bag’s incredibly wavy, organic form isn’t a graphic, but rather a series of grooves meticulously modeled and then 3D printed in plastic. Conventional production techniques wouldn’t work given the number of undercuts on the ridges of the bag, so Odo relied on 3D printing Nylon and then giving it a hand-dyed paint job in stunning shades of metallic. These shades work brilliantly well, forming complex high-contrast light and shadow patterns that make them instantly eye-grabbing and immediately give you the urge to run your hand across it’s ridged surface.
