Palate the treat
Our project was inspired by the dining culture of working professionals in United States. We find their lunch culture highly inconvenient, and dinner preparation as a tiresome activity. Their lunch options are expensive, time consuming, and disappointing.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Palate is a vacuum food storage system that provides a luxury eating experience for working professionals.
By providing elegant food plating as well as fresh and appetizing taste sealed into one single package, Palate allows users to treat themselves to a restaurant-quality food every day of the week.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The user can easily cook and preserve a multiple course meal in an attractive plating set-up.
By utilizing the hand held vacuum, they can cook enough portions to fill multiple container at once, store and transfer the meals from fridge to work while preserving the food perfectly in their freshly cooked state.
