We’ve been talking a lot about school lunches recently, so we thought we would remind our readers that taking lunch to work, can be just as challenging for adults as it is packing it for kids. To help make it easier, and more fashionable, we talk to Fabien Marret, one of the founders of monbento, about their collection of lunch boxes designed to reinvent the art of dining on the move.

The monbento lunchboxes are the perfect way to do just that, and they help save money on eating out. These stylish food containers are also an ideal way to reuse your container and avoid creating waste by using throw-away containers.

In order to keep monbento products appealing to adults and older children alike, design in the conception phase plays a very important role, and are adapted to consumer needs. The products are microwave and dishwasher safe, airtight and convenient. Also, the brand brings back childhood memories of having lunch prepared and brought to school, but now with a style that is  design-oriented and cool. Monbento brings forth the emotions associated with carefree pleasures, especially with the soft touch, and the variety of colors available allows users to choose as one wishes.

The design of monbento also includes practical aspects. For instance, monbento lunch boxes have a larger storage capacity, are airtight with a silicone gasket, and microwave and dishwasher safe. And, finally, the look of monbento is important. The style is chic, sleek, fun and colorful. It is a high-quality, well-thought-out design that takes into account the user’s experiences and is ultimately designed to be in tune with their wishes and needs.

Making our lunch boxes truly distinctive is that they are in  harmony between Western and Eastern eating. The traditional Japanese bento box has been adapted to Western eating habits. Further, the art of bento making, or lunch making, is huge part of Japanese culture and monbento fans are also bento making pros/amateurs.  Bento making (lunch making) can be fun!

Keep an eye out for a mid-October update to the company website, when they’ll have pricing for the U.S. market. In the meantime, get your plan together for taking lunch to work!
