As machines envelop us into their cold, EXOCET PARIS reaches back to technology to salvage the animal in us. Crystallizing their shared reverence for the living beings of nature, Exocet’s Morning Lau from Hong Kong and Yasmine Jaber from Beirut summon a taxonomy of hybrid creatures in the form of innovative hand-bag designs.

Exocet is a hybrid through and through. Just as its eponymous symbol—the flying fish—soars from the waves with its winglike fins, Exocet, too, spans two worlds. Crossing deep-diving artisanship with high-flying technology, Exocet lifts the tradition of bag-making into 3D-printed flight.
