GAE, the new tote-backpack by Nava Design dedicated to Gae Aulenti

GAE is a tribute dedicated to Gae Aulenti by Nava Design and Sovrappensiero Design Studio. A unique product, like the icon that inspired it and from which it takes its name.


GAE is a tote-backpack that reflects the style and architectural choices of Gae Aulenti. Balanced geometric shapes are emphasized by an intense and vibrant color, making GAE the perfect synthesis of organization, versatility, linearity, and aesthetic rigor. Entirely hand made in Italy in a “limited edition of only 100 items”.

The bag is made of fine Italian full-grain leather, soft to the touch yet strong and durable. Tone-on-tone fabric inserts emphasize GAE’s urban nature that lives harmoniously with its true identity: elegant and distinctive.

The bag is closed by two elegant magnetic buttons and a practical zip that provides greater protection of personal belongings. The inside is cleverly designed to meet the needs of a refined, organized and careful professional.

GAE is an elegant women’s accessory designed to turn into a backpack, handbag, crossbody, or shoulder bag thanks to the simple functionality of its two adjustable and removable webbing straps.
