tiffin lunch kit
tiffin lunch kit is a refined dining experience on the go. The two bowls, cast in durable thin-walled ceramics, stack on top of each other and seal with a cork lid that doubles as a plate. Unpacking your lunch is like unpacking a table setting: the compact kit unfolds into a meal. The bowls allow you to separate your food for combinations like curries and rice, soup and bread, granola and fruit. The set can be used in the home or carried away to work and school; or wrapped up for a picnic.
Taking inspiration from Japanese bento boxes and indian tiffins, the bowls morph shape from a sturdy square bottom to a circular top. The form factor allows the bowls to fit together perfectly and intuitively. the components bind together securely with the use of a natural cloth elastic strap, held in place between the bottom bowls' feet.
Having designed a model of the bowls in a CAD software, the bowls were then outputted to a CNC router, where the shapes were subtracted out of foam, and used to make plaster moulds.
