Brian Tong

Brian Tong created this totally impractical lunch kit out of a huge log, for his grad show. The spot for the silver chopsticks is a nice touch and I like that fact that there is even a spot for a napkin.

    I LOVE that there’s a spot for chopstics. That entire thing looks like a bento box anyways for sushi on the go.

      yes! i was gonna call this the world’s heaviest bento box but i didn’t think everyone would know what that was

        I was going to say that YOU WOULD love that there’s a spot for the chopsticks but didn’t want you to think I was racist 😛

        There’s even a perfect spot to hold your soya.
