The foldable


DIY Portable Workstation

Being a freelancer today encorporate specific characteristics in the definition of working activities in our contemporary culture.

Coworking spaces, internet cafés and basically every area with free wi-fi around the city now have becomes the new paradigm of the contemporary office; it has no walls or boundaries and it is fragmented as the internet can be. According to such scenario, the contemporary freelancer has the whole world as an office, here is where the foldable backpack comes into play.

This project is inteded to be realized within a Fablab, thourgh the use of digital fabrication tools such as laser cutturs; the felt can be shaped according to specific needs and transformed in a useful tool for the contemporary freelancer. 

The Workshop

Besides the project realized for the course of “Designing for cultural groups” at the Swinburne University of Technology; I also experimented and tested the realization of this project during a workshop organized at Fablab Torino.

Users were invited to join our team, test their DIY abilities in order to make and customize their own Folding backpack. By the end of the workshop every participant had his own chance to test fablab machineries and test with materials combinations.
