The Sia Mai lunch boxes consist of two serving bowls in glass held together with an elastic band. The shape of the lunch boxes is inspired by the classic Trangia Stormcookers and by camping in the outdoors. With this underlying reference, they encourage contemporary urbanites to stage a picnic in the living room and highlight the way everyday life has changed by reinterpreting the popular icon of the lunch box.
With their shape, the bowls offer a range of possibilities for serving and arranging food. Sia Maiâ lunch boxes offer a humorous comment on our modern lifestyle, which has changed so drastically since the days of the traditional lunch box. The new lunch box comes in the form of beautiful and appealing bowls for serving and storage. The bowls are multifunctional but also insist on playful experimentation with the meal and on drawing attention to our modern-day relationship to food.
Small Lunch Box, small / Dia.: 15 cm H: 8 cm Material: clear glass, coloured rubber bands (comes with yellow, lime, purple and red elastics) Also available in Medium size.
