P9 Artist Profile: Wei Li

Encased is a collection of body-shaped leather luggages that are sensual, beautiful, and slightly disturbing at the same time. Designed and created by artist/designer Wei Li.

The form of the body was scanned, and the resulted model was CNC machined to make the leather forming molds. The suitcases were completely hand-crafted from scratch. The zipper handles were 3d-printed in bronze based on models of the artist's own hand.
