From Gasoline Alley Antiques: a lunch box that looks like a loaf of sliced bread. (Available on their website for $400)
Conceptually similar to Robert Brownjohn’s cigarette package design that we discussed earlier this month.
Or it would be if this were a bread package. The idea being: the outside of the package serves as a precise diagram of the contents, almost as if the package were transparent. Except that—(just as in the food photography for some unphotogenic frozen entrée)—there’s an opportunity to show a more idealized version of the contents than would be seen through an ordinary transparent package.
And because trompe l’oeil packaging is so fun, the consumer won’t mind being fooled.
(Bread Loaf Lunch Box also comes with a package-related thermos, after the fold…)
That’s right: a licensed Campbell’s Soup1, Pop-Art-Influence Thermos!2
