The Mealbox: Just Add Food


By Cari Martens

Now you can be the talk of the town at the next neighborhood picnic. In this Pop-Up Lifestyle world, you don’t have to settle for measly folding chairs and a blanket.

Just bring your own dining table and chairs all in a self-contained box. The Mealbox
is a Japanese style dining arrangement made out of birch plywood and reinforced with carbon fibre and Neoprene rubber seat-padding. The table, made by IGLand Design Company, also doubles as a coffee table. All you have to add is the food!
