Phoresy Pack is the outcome of our explorations in the field of customizable and generative product design. It embodies the idea that the objects we surround ourselves with leave a distinct mark reciprocally, and that with time the user contributes to the appearance of his/her possessions as much as their initial designer, yet in a different fashion.

But we are not alone… There are countless creativity techniques and tools that can help us develop new ideas, solve problems or establish a path we had not identified before.
