Laptop Lunch Box. Design: Scott Klinker


Point of View: American lifestyles are an on-the-go, multi-tasking mix of living and working. My concepts try to balance an attitude of refined eating with constant dynamic movement. Click on image for larger view.

    This one instantly reminded me of an art piece that a friend of mine did ( While Roman’s commentary is a bit wry I think the shared idea of the laptop as a unit of measure is interesting.
    Scott’s design assumes the absence of a laptop and comfortably moves into its vacancy. Is there a scenario where the two (laptop and lunch box) can co-exist? Maybe the newer, smaller netbooks create a scenario where space is leftover in that bag that was usually filled with a 17″ behemoth.

    Is there a point where laptop and lunch box can interact or relate, in the bag or on the desk?

    My design does not assume the absence of a laptop in the bag. This lunchbox slips into your bag (or purse) right next to your laptop. Both are thin. I assume people will eat lunch in front the laptop as is now normal. Perhaps an image of that here would help.

    Is there the possibility to keep food inside, I mean, can you take your food, prepared at home, with you to office? I make this question as it seems so thin……

    Gloria, I imagine this to be about 3 cm deep. It is inspired by a Japanese Bento Box which is quite thin. Yes, you would prepare food at home and take it with you to the office. It could fit sushi, or a sandwich and salads – for example, pasta salad. The inside containers would be a microwave-safe plastic. The outside container would be stainless.

    I wonder about the weight–how much weight can you add to your shoulder before it becomes annoying? Before it becomes a problem?

    the outside metal shell here would need to be gasketed to prevent leakage. Would require some engineering.

    I’m excited about the horizontal orientation, but wonder about size (will is also fit into a purse?). Also- can the interior plastic components function independently from the metal exterior? Are they spill proof/with lids? Also, how likely is it that a prepared selection of foods would all easily fit into a horizontally orientated container?
