The Table Bag(2013)
Nylon Fabric
35x26x6

The Table Bag is a design dedicated to the workaholics. It is a shoulder bag which can be easily transformed into a working surface anywhere and anytime.
 
With the special crossed straps design, the two straps not only provided friction between each other which stabled the table in place but also enabled the adjustability of the lengths for the straps, allowing the Table Bag to be fully supported by the two straps no matter when it is used as a bag or when it is used as a table.
 
One strap goes from the left side of the front to the right side of the back while the other strap goes from the right side of the front to the left side of the back. Hence they crossed with each other in which the crossed part is hidden in the neck rest. The neck rest is not only for the comfort reasons but also for affordance reasons. It wraps the two straps together, making it easier to understand how to wear this bag for the users.

My name is Ariel Yi Chi Chang, a 22 years old Taiwanese girl studying MA Industrial Design at University of the Arts London Central Saint Martins. I have lived in Eindhoven, Nottingham and Shanghai as well but I have always considered Taiwan as my home as I grew up there. I found myself lucky to be raised in such a country like Taiwan because of its passionate and caring people who are always thinking for the others. This affected my works greatly in the way that my personal projects are often re-designs of everyday products in which these products have evolved themselves in order to make the users feel happy or comfortable. These includes a hair brush with a hole at the centre, a cloth hanger with twisted edges and the Table Bag which is going to be exhibited in the Formosa Show this year.
