Food à Porter Three-Compartment Lunch Box by Sakura Adachi for Alessi
Food a Porter Lunch Box by Sakura Adachi for Alessi
Featured in the Wall Street Journal.
From the designer:
“Travelling with a business bag gives you the freedom to carry food prepared at home, then eat it in the office, at the park or anywhere outside the home. “Food à Porter” is a lunch box that does not look like a lunch box. It was designed for those who are busy but do not want to forego the pleasure of taking a break with their favorite foods.
“Food à porter” has three compartments: two containers, separated and hermetically sealed by two lids and a third compartment that is created thanks to the rounded shape of the upper part, where snacks or packaged sweets can be stored. The lunch box can be used in a variety of ways, depending on the food to be transported. Removing the top cover increases the capacity of the central container, which can then accommodate, for example, sandwiches, fruit or yogurt. With “Food à porter” it’s possible to eat healthily wherever you are and whenever you want to take a break.”
