As an interior designer, I realize I am always on the go and don’t have time to stop. I realize there is a design aesthetic in everything visually I see. My aesthetic reaches from home into whatever I do which includes what I carry my food in I thought if I get a really neat looking lunch box I can pack what I want and always stop for a cup of tea and eat my lunch. Then I discovered these wonderful, colorful, well designed bento boxes. I think the brown bag gets a modern makeover with the bento box, a clever twist on the Japanese lunch box. These reusuable containers are the ideal format for lunch at the office, picnics and TV dinners, just plain being on the go.
A bento box is a single-portion takeout or home-packed meal common in Japanese cuisine. A traditional bento holds rice, fish or meat, with pickled or cooked vegetables, usually in a box-shaped container.
“Bento” originates from the Southern Song Dynasty slang (pinyin), meaning “convenient” or “convenience.”
In a nod to its inspiration, this minimal tote resembles nigiri sushi tied up with seaweed. It includes two airtight containers that compartmentalize your meal and stay shut with intermediary lids. Hectic commute? Fear not: an elastic strap holds it all together for easy, shift-free transport.
Consisting in two airtight containers, an adjustable separator and a wide elastic strap, foods stay in place and arrive intact. Made in stronger high-quality plastic with a “soft-touch” finish, the new lunchbox combines sturdiness and style.
Inspired by Japan’s traditional plum blossoms that flower in spring, CasaBento designed and created a new range. The colors display the wonderful art of bento with the hand painting skill lovingly passed down from generations to generations of bento artisans in Japan. The intricate golden plum blossom details are enhanced by the black base color and the elements of the bento box are designed to create a luxurious effect.
The Bento Box have been in production since 1925. All made in Japan, these bento boxes are durable, vibrant, and timeless. With a wide variety of glossy colors and sizes, people of all ages will be pleased to show off these crafty food solutions. Our attention to detail, design, and innovation provides you with nothing but the highest quality products. The side catches hold the airtight lid perfectly closed.
