The Bento Cut & Prep Set may look like a cutting board at first, but there is a very good reason why it wasn't dubbed one. It has more features than the average chopping block. Namely, this design boasts sleek and discreet drawers that help to keep all the food being prepared separate and organized.

Designed by Hlynur Atlason, an Icelandic designer based in New York, the Bento Cut & Prep Set was created for Umbra. Interestingly, the 'drawers' also double as a set of five measuring cups, which conveniently speed up the process of figuring out portions for specific dishes.

In addition to the Bento Cut & Prep Set, Atlason designed a set of three triangular canisters for the kitchen.
