Redesigned it because I felt the patterns weren’t working.
Taking it Away
A brand new dining experience.
We have seen recycled plastic takeaway boxes and utensils, but are they the best solutions to reducing the usage of plastics? In the 2010 Singapore Waste Statistics by the National Environment Agency (NEA), plastics contributed the highest percentage of waste disposed in Singapore and yet have one of the lowest recycling rates out of the other waste materials.
This project hence experiments with an alternative to using Styrofoam boxes and plastic utensils by introducing a new structural design that combines the cutleries with the main takeaway box to reduce the usage of Styrofoam/plastic. Through paper folding, die-cuts and score lines, a Spork (Spoon + Fork) structure can be formed to replace the need for disposable Styrofoam boxes as well as plastic cutleries.
Food Republic overturns old perceptions of dining in food courts to fresh outlooks at new heights with hopes and ideals. With this new takeaway packaging design, Food Republic would be able to provide a brand new dining experience for its consumers, both visually and functionally.
