Mobile Eating Tool Reimagines The Sidewalk As Communal Eating Space
Designer Alexandra Pulver's Pop-Up Lunch Bag intervenes to make lunch more than just a functional necessity.
When you spend the bulk of your life in an office and an urban environment, lunch breaks can be a welcomed relief. Yet, with this respite comes the obstacle of finding a place to actually eat. For many, there are two options: the desk or a restaurant.
Designer Alexandra Pulver seeks to make an intervention into this daily routine with her Pop-Up Lunch initiative. Envisioning the sidewalk as a potential place for communal gatherings, Pulver has designed a lunch bag that doubles as seat when connected to a fence. In designing these “mobile eating tools”, she seeks to:
…inspire even a handful of my fellow urbanites to reconsider the potential for lunch – to be a joyful daily event – and for the sidewalks of NYC to serve as more than just pathways.
