More often than not, the bag you carry is just as important as the items in it. Whether you are heading for a lunch meeting or preparing for an important pitch at work, you always need to have your work essentials at hand. When entering a new year, we are given the chance to reflect about what is really important in our everyday lives - what worked last year and what did not? We are able to cut to the bone and bring attention to the concept of “less is more”. It is time to focus on the “must-have” work essentials and freshen up our daily business life.

 

Jesper, Brand Strategy Assistant at Normann Copenhagen, Type: Dedicated Explorer

 

Working on the go.

Brand Strategy Assistant Jesper values colourful surroundings and appreciates an informal and amusing tone at work. As a brand strategy assistant, he regularly goes to meetings and events outside the office to explore new environments, interiors and inspiring showrooms. Being on the go while working, Jesper strives to pack his Sartorial Backpack light with only his essential working tools. Usually, he carries a notebook ready to jot down the reflections and ideas that come into his head. To keep track of time, Jesper is convinced that his Heritage Chronométrie watch is the best way to get a good overview of his busy work routine.

Being your own boss.

Being a passionate entrepreneur and your own boss can be greatly liberating. Nevertheless, it also requires a lot of strength and willingness if you are to achieve your goals. Hans started his career as a traditional toolmaker and worked his way up to become an industrial designer and has now founded his own company. Hans believes that simplicity and quality is the key when designing a great product and therefore always bring his favourite Soft Grain Messenger Bag and Fountain Pen with him when going to a client meeting. As an industrial designer, Hans is driven by the excitement of seeing his products when manufactured, all crisp and finalised.
