Hako is a Japanese restaurant design concept. The restaurant is a mash up of traditional Japanese bento and ekiben lunch service with the mid-century American automat. This box is the prototype for Hako’s tabletop design. Hako means box.

The box uses dovetailed chopsticks as the closure. Once the chopsticks are parted, the box cannot be resealed.
