Festival Lunchbox

Methods and Form in Architecture II, Yale College, Spring 2020

Inspired by the consumption and production of Jamaican Festival dumplings, this lunchbox is made to share such a meal between two people, with dynamic forms and configurations that alter the orientation of this food-sharing interaction. Each compartment of the lunchbox is made for a specific component of a traditional Jamaican Festival meal; a cone with a bottom mesh for the fried dough, a sloped dish with holes to drain oily main dishes like sltfish and ackee, a colander-like dish for boiled greens and bananas, and a simple cubic box for a napkin or other components that tie-up the meal.
