Inspired by the Shaker design principle of elegance in utility, 1.0 is a lunch box pared down to the bare essentials to accommodate any type of meal. The incorporation of a solid handle and wedged tenons gives 1.0 a distinct top and bottom, making it very straightforward in its use. The vertical orientation allows for the inclusion of greater amounts of food and the occupation of minimal desk space. Also considered is the element of gravity, which holds the sliding door in place ensuring that the contents remain secure during transit. Made with hard maple and finished with salad bowl oil, 1.0 contains two interior boxes, both of which can be removed depending on the user’s dining preferences.
