The Scamp Bag by Jasper Morrison is now available in three colors: black, olive, and khaki.
Morrison set out with the intent to create a purposeful carry-on bag for his frequent travel—a discreet and archetypal utilitarian box tote. The Scamp’s thoughtfully scaled and positioned pockets and flap top, all secured by stout zippers, make it an ideal travel companion.
Jasper Morrison is an industrial designer based in London and Paris. He graduated from London's Kingston Polytechnic Design School and completed his postgraduate studies at London’s Royal College of Art and also at the Hochschule der Künste in Berlin. In 1986, he established his eponymous design office in London. Morrison is known for his modest and rational design approach exhibited throughout his work in furniture, electronics, lighting, and product design. In 2005, he co-curated the groundbreaking exhibit, Super Normal, with Japanese designer Naoto Fukusawa, which celebrated the overlooked, anonymous and humble aspects of design. Throughout his nearly thirty year career, Morrison has developed longstanding working relationships with companies including Alessi, Canon, Cappellini, Flos, Vitra, Muji, and OIivetti.
The Scamp Bag joins designs by Konstantin Grcic and Klaartje Martens, with those by Hella Jongerius and Scholten & Baijings to follow. The collection was created in response to a brief that asked the designers to create bags suited to their personal needs, an exercise intended to permit unhindered expression using highly skilled small-scale US-based production. The bags are available through maharam.com and momastore.org.
