Having already given us a new take on the humble lunch bag with its Compleat FoodBag, Norwegian company Unikia set out to redesign the lunch box for its latest offering, the Compleat FoodSkin.

Rarher than the traditional rigid box design most of us are used to, the Compleat FoodBag features a laptop-like form factor with a rigid plastic base and a hinged, elastic silicone skin lid. This allows it to stretch and hold the contents together in transit, open up to become a placemat at mealtime and fold flat when done.

So although it won’t stop the sandwich from getting squashed at the bottom of a school bag, it will free up some extra space for books on the way home.

The plastic base and frame holding the silicone skin are BPA-free, while the whole kit and kaboodle is also dishwasher safe. Unikia offers the Compleat FoodSkin in blue, mint and purple colors.

It is available now for €24.95 (approx. US$33).

or you could use a paper bag and make lunch for a week on the $33 you saved. Seriously, what is the advantage of this?

Seriously? It's obviously been too long since you were at school. The advantage, of course, is that no other kids have this same kind of lunch box.

eh. Doesn't protect the food, doesn't keep the food cold, doesn't come in fascinating designs with favorite characters or psychedelic patterns. I could see an adult grabbing one without thinking, but I don't think it's particularly attention grabbing for kids or functional for a discerning adult. This looks like a solution in search of a problem.
