EASTPAK bags are already famous for reflecting their users’ personalities, almost becoming an extension of their own bodies. Now they have become an extension of the world’s foremost creative minds as well, thanks to the EASTPAK Artist Studio. 77 of the continent’s most creative personalities have been selected to produce original creations from a number of limited edition ‘blank’ EASTPAK bags. The artists have been selected from different backgrounds and include painters, sculptors and poets as well as musicians, graffiti artists and television personalities. EASTPAK is proud to support this select group of artists and the communities that feed their inspiration. All proceeds of sales of these one-of-a-kind creations will be donated to a local charity organisation in each participating country. Founder and Artistic Director of dimension+ Keith Lam create an audiovisual pack “Tubediopack” for Artist Studio, which is an sound interactive audiovisual backpack with 3 light tube reacting with the ambient sound of the environment.
眾所周知，EASTPAK袋款的獨特之處, 就是它能夠反映出用戶的個性，甚至被視為身體的一部份。今天，多得Artist Studio，EASTPAK的袋更成為世界上最具創意思維的繆斯。 EASTPAK Artist Studio召集世界上77個最有創意和來自不同背景的人士，包括畫家、雕塑家、詩人、音樂家、塗鴉藝術家和電視名人，讓他們在一個「空白」的限量版EASTPAK袋上盡情發揮自己的創作。 EASTPAK全力支持這些藝術家團體和他們孕育靈感的社區。
在香港，EASTPAK Artist Studio找來10個不同範疇的藝術家，包括Topaz Leung, Martin Cheung, Kay Wong, Benny Au, Desmond Leung, Michael Leung, Jack Sit, Lau Chi Chung, Keith Lam和Casper Chan。他們為簡約的EASTPAK袋增添無窮創意。所有袋款正在海港城LCX展覽的Artist Studio ，並將於3月28日起在《東TOUCH》的+SHOP以暗標型式給公眾網上競投，底價為$460。競投所得的收益扣除成本後將撥捐保良局作慈善用途。 dimension+ 創辦人及藝術總監 Keith Lam為Artist Studio 創作了一個聲光背包 “Tubediopack”。背包嵌入三支光管，它的光節奏是隨著環境的聲音而變化。
