Notabag: Bag & Backpack
Notabag – the smart combination of bag and backpack. The innovative carry bag becomes a practical rucksack in only an instant. Not only suitable to transport nutrition, but also books on your way to school, to the fitness club, to the swimming pool and for other leisure activities.
Adnan Alicusic designed the Notabag in 2012, in order to offer a facelift to everyday objects.
The idea of Notabag
“The Notabag idea was born during a trip to the local farmers market. It was one of those situations that many can identify with: the grocery bag filled up very quickly and I still had to ride my bike home. That’s when the real “fun” began.
Things got pretty tricky once I found myself in the middle of busy city traffic. I was trying to maneuver my bike, while having a heavy shopping bag on my handlebar bumping against the front wheel. I couldn’t help but wish that I had my backpack with me, or that at least I could carry my shopping bag over the shoulders. At that moment, I started visualizing how a simple bag could be transformed into a backpack.” Esplained Adnan Alicusic.
Functional interior bag
Your “must-haves” like the purse, the mobile phone or the keys are stored inside of the interior pocket. And if you don’t need a bag or a backpack, Notabag can easily be folded into the pocket. This is how the bag becomes a handy purse immediately.
The clever design by Adnan Alicusic was nominated for the German Design Award 2016 among other prizes. The German Design Award honours special futuristic ideas.
