iF concept design award 2010

This fast noodle box, CookSoo, is introduced to resolve the problem in the limitation of space due to an amount of cup noodles you want to carry. The fast noodle which is called Gooksoo (in Korean) is very easy-to-cook as well as getting loved worldwide. When you carry more than a couple of cup noodles such as while in shipping or backpacking, the unnecessary spaces in containers are very ineffective. This CookSoo is a very compact container which minimizes the spaces they take and maximizes a number of noodles you can carry. Once you open it, you will get increased space for hot water. The lid works as not only a cover but also a dish.
