Memento Bento



“ I am your moon and your moonlight too

I am your flower garden and your water too

I have come all this way, eager for you

without shoes or shawl

I want you to laugh

To kill all your worries

To love you

To nourish you.”

— Rumi

Though the Japanese bento’s use as a box lunch is hardly novel—­it also arose independently as the Taiwanese biandang, the Indian tiffin or the Korean dosirak—it suffuses artful elegance to an everyday ritual. For fall, Tzelan developed the Memento Bento concept for the Grand Hyatt Gurgaon Residences, a new tower development by IREO (designed by tonychi, architecture by Sir Norman Foster) in the outskirts of New Delhi, India.
Custom-designed for globally minded residents, the high-quality lacquer with a screen-print silver lattice pattern integrates beautiful interior space with a tabletop surface and easily dismantles into multi-purpose serving or storage trays: one with a gold plated surface and a three-storage and four-storage divider.
