Shot at Cigarkassen, a summerhouse on the north coast of Zealand, Denmark, the house was built in 2000 by Henning Larsen Architects for gallerist Michael Andersen. The larch wooden cladding on the exterior of the house is designed to provide the interior space with a variety of light and shadow throughout the day. Furthermore, the west facade is equipped with horizontally hinged shutters that, when open, give shade to the house. Multi-functional like the M/S Daypack, the M/S Daypack is able to provide 3 different carrying options - hand-held tote bag, shoulder-carried tote bag and backpack. This epitomises Mismo's functional sensibility, wherein every product is reduced to its simplest form, yet without sacrificing sophistication and elegance.
The M/S Utility is no different, and as its name suggests, it is a utilitarian bag that switches between briefcase and duffel/tote bag just by unsnapping the lobster clasps. Spacious and minimalist, it serves the work-going cosmopolite who needs a change of outfit when hitting the gym.
The ultimate luxury in Mismo's range of products, the Morris is a handsomely crafted briefcase that is what it is - nothing more and nothing less. The boxy exterior exudes an understated luxury that belies the exuberant striped interior. The interior is served by a large main compartment with two slip pockets and one padded laptop compartment, more than sufficient for any man who has to carry his work everywhere.
