SONNET155 by Lobke Beckfeld and Johanna Hehemeyer-Cürten
Alexander Zaxarov
May 10, 2021

SONNET155 is an upgrade to the ordinary paper bag. Designed by Berlin students Lobke Beckfeld and Johanna Hehemeyer-Cürten from a plant-based paper.

“With SONNET155 we aim for a desirable product, which represents sustainability as a treat rather than a burden. The design of the bag follows a minimalist approach to enhance the texture and translucence of the material. he bag is fully biodegradable in water or soil as it is made from a composite of two raw materials, which can be sourced locally: cellulosic production waste from the textile industry and pectin, a plant-based polysaccharide and a by-product from juice production. The material is fully compostable and can be integrated within a biological life-cycle” explain the designers.

The design of the bag follows a minimalist approach to enhance its texture and translucence. Thus, the elegant shape transforms the material into a desirable product, which represents sustainability as a treat rather than a burden.
