Traditional take out box packaging that's made of styrofoam, plastic or some sort of paper usually have pretty basic, but unappealing designs that are not great in terms of their aesthetics and impact on the environment.

This packaging concept by Swedish graphic design student Gustav Karlsson flips all of these notions on their head, turning greasy take out packaging into something that's stylish and eco-friendly, inspired by vintage camera bags.

Karlsson's designs were created for a Swedish vegetarian restaurant, bar and cinema called Kino and includes three different kinds of containers with different functions. All of the take out containers are equipped with easy-to-carry handles and lids that are just as convenient to open and close.
