The ONE Backpack

View all 14 Photos

What happens when two architects design a backpack? You get The One. Distinctive and creative, the design features a multifaceted outer shell with a geometric polygonal shape that certainly stands out from the crowd. Easily customizable, The One also allows the user to change the shell via two metal zippers that detach the outer section from the interior leather backpack. Different colors and finishes for different moods and outfits.

Apart from being versatile and customizable, the backpack also provides the opportunity for artistic expression thanks to future collaborations between the New York-based The One brand and other creatives. “We collaborate with famous designers around the world, who will create new Shells for the ONE backpack. That’s how you can wear a real ‘Art Object’ on your back. We see the future in this, because each person is unique, sees the world differently, and has to be able to express oneself. And the most beautiful way of expression is the unique design,” explains company founder Ivan Zhurba.

In terms of features, The One comes with a damage and water-resistant shell, anti-theft construction, safety pockets for a laptop and an iPhone, two metal zippers on both sides, and adjustable straps. Handcrafted from premium Italian leather, the backpack features a glossy polystyrene material on the exterior, reinforcing the slightly futuristic aesthetic. Launched on Kickstarter, the backpack is available to pre-order at an early bird price of $110. If you’re in Amsterdam, you can also get a closer look at the design by visiting the prestigious Museum of Bags and Purses, Tassenmuseum Hendrikje. Images courtesy of The One.
