Maharam invited designers Konstantin Grcic, Hella Jongerius, and Jasper Morrison, among others, to imagine a bag they’d like to use themselves. While reflecting several distinct approaches, the bags are united by a focus on utility, simple geometric form, and inventive construction. Material choices complement each bag’s character: rigid and hard wearing cotton canvas, supple leather, lightweight nylon parachute cloth, or papery matte polyurethane. Marked by thoughtful functionality and refined details, the bags are made by high-quality US producers.

Maharam was founded in 1902 by Louis Maharam, a Russian immigrant. Through the generations, Maharam evolved from a source of theatrical textiles for costume and set design in the 1940s to a pioneer of performance-driven textiles for commercial interiors in the '60s.

- Konstantin Grcic
Konstantin Grcic was born in Munich in 1965. He was trained as a cabinetmaker at The John Makepeace School in Dorset, England and then he went on to study industrial design at the RCA in London. In 1991 he founded his design firm, Konstantin Grcic Industrial Design, in Munich. KGID is active in several areas of design, from furniture to architecture projects.
Konstantin Grcic defines function in human terms, combining formal strictness with considerable mental acuity and humour. Each of his products is characterized by a careful research into the history of design and architecture and his passion for technology and materials. Known for pared-down pieces, Grcic is often called a minimalist but the designer himself prefers to speak of simplicity.
Grcic has designed products for Eemco, Flos, Magis, Mattiazzi and Vitra. His products have won important prizes and are represented in major design collections around the world.
