Reflective bags for urban commuters designed and produced in Switzerland. Travel safely through space and time!

About this project

The ORBIT COLLECTION is made in Switzerland to guarantee product sustainability and fair working conditions. It comes in two sizes and is specifically made for use by left or right-handers.

Simple geometric and functional design. The proportions, compartments, reflective stripes and folding options are composed in the golden ratio. The simple, durable bag is lightweight and weatherproof. Structured, minimalist style bags – unique in their own architecture.

Reflective stripes surround your torso for high visibility from all directions. The bag folds over to adjust to its contents while hiding your zippers from pick-pockets.

CHELSEA is an American architect whose passion for construction techniques and materials research range from applications in architecture to product and fashion design. Her acute attention to detail can be seen in the functional clarity of each product she designs.

“I love to work with material, directly in my hands and test connections, closures and functional details. The way that two materials connect can offer great possibilities to the quality of space they create.”

STEFANIE is a German architect and designer inspired by scandinavian and japanese design & culture. Her projects show her variety of interests ranging from product and fashion design, scenography to architecture and urbanism with a focus on social needs.
