2011年,来自洛杉矶的华裔设计师姐妹Kimberly Wu(曾是Honda’s Advanced Studio的概念车设计师)和姐姐Nancy Wu(曾是Nike的鞋履设计师)一同创立了设计师包袋品牌Building Block,以简约实用的功能主义作为设计初衷。

正如其名,Building Block有着建筑感的极简线条和结构,每一只包如积木,不断的回到原点,重新组合,更多的可能性随之诞生。

除了每只包上标志性的用来收口的积木块或流苏结之外,没有多余的装饰。正因为外观造型和颜色非常基本,所以在与衣着的搭配方面完全无压力,是圆还是方,是大还是小,看需要,看心情咯。

座右铭?
Nancy: “To make something which looks like itself is, therefore, the problem, the solution. To make something which is unraveling, its own justification is something like a dream. There is no paradox, for that is only a separation from reality. We have no mind, only its dream of being, a dream of substance when there is one.” —Richard Tuttle

Kimberly:“We shall not cease from exploration, and at the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.” —T.S. Eliot
