Edible Take-Out Box Leaves No Waste Behind [Pics]
Greek designer creates a bread-based container perfect for picnics.
Not only are cardboard boxes, paper plates, and plastic containers a huge waste of resources, they aren’t all that convenient. Greek designer Kostantia Manthou has a better idea, a bread-based box that you can also be broken up into miniature edible plates. The idea was presented at Milan Design Week 2014 as part of the “This is Very Dangerous” exhibition.
KI·RA and the Edible Tower, as the bread-based box has been called, is a simple kit that includes a recipe for bread that is strong enough to use as a box, a ceramic casserole dish, a special tool that makes it easy to divide the bread up, and even a tablecloth to transport the bread should you want it for a picnic.
