The say that necessity is the mother of invention and this creative Melina backpack must be one of her favorites. Designed by David Shatz, a student at the Bezalel Academy in Jerusalem, the bag is built to help individuals enjoy a bit more peace and quiet in crowded urban green spaces at a moment's notice. And, when your brush with the nomadic life is over, the Melina can be collapsed into a bag to be used to carry gear with its built-in shoulder straps. See more angles of this exercise in design in the photos below.
