The Take-Out Box Gets An Elegant Redesign
Swedish designer Gustav Karlsson creates a new eco-friendly version that can be carried like a lunch box.
We are already familiar with the typical styrofoam and plastic take-out containers or the iconic paperboard Chinese take-out box, and though their designs are enough to fulfill their basic function they are not exactly environment-friendly.
So Swedish graphic design student Gustav Karlsson redesigned the take-out box to create an eco-friendly version that is inspired by vintage camera bags.
Karlsson created the design for Kino, a vegetarian restaurant, bar and cinema located in Sweden. The establishment is launching their takeaway service and Karlsson was tasked to create a design that was appropriate to their cuisine. According to the designer’s Behance page, the focus was on sustainability and customer experience, as well as a strong graphic identity that fits with Kino’s current branding and image.
