Project goal

Gravity sketch and Keyshot held a worldwide design contest. The brief was to sketch a concept design for a hiking backpack. Out of more than 100 entries, 5 finalists were chosen and received a VR headset to model the backpack using Gravity Sketch. The results were then presented live in front of the judges Roshan Hakkim, Noah Sussman and Nicholas Baker inside a collaboration room in Gravity Sketch.

My role in the project

With my design, I focused on 3 key points: ergonomic, simplistic and protective. The design took inspiration from the Herman Miller Cosm chair that has a skeleton structure with the fabric stretched in between. This unique approach is what separated the design from others and it ended up winning the competition.
