The trick to standing out amongst the 35 designers crowded into the Designboom mart at ICFF is not to overwhelm your tiny display space with everything you've ever made. Canadian designer Miss Sinclaire set up shop with just one product, her tiffin lunch kit, and its clean lines and thoughtful design elements easily caught my eye. As anyone who regularly eats their weekly midday meal from plastic togo boxes and ziploc containers knows, it feels really nice to eat off an actual plate with real utensils.
Sinclaire's design gracefully solves one of those problems. The tiffin lunch kit is made up of two stacking bowls and a cork lid that locks the set together under an elastic strap and a metal handle. The bowls, which Sinclaire casts herself in "durable, thin-walled ceramic," are beautifully made. They can be used to separate food like curries and rice or soup and bread, and the cork lid can double as a trivet or even a plate. Pack it up for a picnic or for an office lunch you don't chuck in the bin when you're finished. You can pick one up at Sinclaire's online shop for $65.
