IKO BAG

Am Saiyaveth, Chelsea Kim, Frankie Gaw


IKO Iko in Japanese means “Go!”, and that’s exactly the philosophy we want people to experience when wearing this bag. The goal for us was to design a softgood that could create a behavior change to choose transportation such as biking and walking over driving a car. We wanted this bag to be versatile in the way it was used, as the design encourages multifunctionality and organization. As a tool for commuting, we ultimately wanted to create an experience where we carefully considered wearer’s safety and presence amongst a road full of cars.


MOOD BOARD We wanted to create a biking bag that demonstrated a simple, clean aesthetic; something that would balance against the bustling city a commuter would travel in. This mood board shows the inspirations which led us to choose the colors and materials for the design to exude that simplicity.

SMALL THINGS Organization for your phone, charger, headphones, keys, and any small things that tend to be thrown around.
