****The design story:
In Japanese cuisine, we have a style of food called bento, which is a single-portion takeout or home-packed meal. A traditional bento holds rice, fish or meat, with pickled or cooked vegetables, usually in a box-shaped container.
Some years ago, one of my Japanese friends suggested me to design a lunch bag using wool felt, because of the wool's high insulating quality. She said that due to the long-lasting bad economy and the stream of concerning about health, people in Japan have been enjoying cooking at home, and home-packed bento lunch has been booming even among businessmen. That was the trigger of designing a lunch bag. Read my trial-and-error prototyping story on my blog:
