A new design for a Japanese bento lunch box? Doesn't that belong on the The Kitchen? Well, it would, except this isn't a bento box at all. It's a... ...dining room table and chairs set!
Mealbox is a 27- by 30-inch box less than 18 inches high that opens to a low dining set. The fully assembed table, fit together like a jigsaw puzzle, is 90" long and seats 6. When the dining table's not in use, the packed-up kit can double as a coffee table.
The design is by Norwegian designers Alet and Dag Igland of Ignald Design. The materials are birch plywood reinfoced with carbonfiber. The seat tops are padded with neoprene rubber.
