Centre Pompidou/Book Bag
This original tote-bag is decorated with an original sketch designed by the architect Renzo Piano. The winning project, submitted by the architects Richard Rogers, Renzo Piano and Gianfranco Franchini broke with architectural conventions by moving functional elements such as escalators, water pipes and air conditioning to the outside of the building, freeing interior space for the display of art works. The pipes and ducts are all colour-coded: blue for air, green for water, red for elevators, yellow for electricity.
Screen printed front on a Black 238 gsm cotton ½ panama, with a screen printed back, black fabric handles. An iconic sketch of an iconic building.
