There are some foods that people would never consider eating while on the go, yet this sushi packaging design flies in the face of that assumption. Although sushi is clean and compact, it's often inconvenient to make on one's own and restaurant's don't supply the best holders for takeout. Jordan Hau, an artist based in the United States, has designed a sushi packaging concept focusing on portability.

Inspired by a classic Japanese lantern, this sushi packaging collapses as the roll shortens. Not only does it fit the theme of such a meal in a creative way, it is also simple and eco-friendly. Hau writes, "A packaging design of sushi container that preserves the lost social and national culture: the visual is inspired by traditional Japanese lantern, while the form of the container encourages sharing."
