A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:
Proof of Concept
Explorations that test ideas and functionality.
Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.
Looks like the final product, but is not functional.
Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.
Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.
Food - influences how we feel, how we look, how healthy we become. The easiest way to have a healthy lifestyle and stay fit is to eat properly!
Having the right food within your reach makes a huge and telling difference on your body over a long period of time. Having a healthy, balanced meal each day will make us feel better, and also keep the weight under control!
We created Fittbo to be the ultimate food box as it is:
easy to use
easy to clean
microwave safe food tray
designed to fit the contemporary, always on the go lifestyle
thermo-insulated to keep the food fresh throughout the day
compartmented to hold everything you need to make a balanced diet in one place.
The main section lids are fitted with a rubber gasket for each compartment. The food tray also has a gasket that holds the entire body and exterior shell together as one piece. Even in the unlikely case you pack in a hurry and don’t close the lids correctly, the unibody designed shell won’t allow any leaking.

Fittbo is compartmented based on the ideal dinner plate for an adult.
For the main course, you have 1/2 of the space for vegetables 1/4 for low GI carbohydrates and 1/4 for lean protein.
To have enough fuel for the day, there are two small compartments for healthy snacks! These are a really important part of every diet. They help keep the appetite under control so you won't go about eating the first thing that comes your way!
We thought a lot about how to create the compartments. After thorough research, we had to design it based on the optimum portions of nutrients. This makes it easy to keep a track of the optimum ratios of food, and transporting the different types of food separately keeps them fresh for longer.
The dimensions are 9.25inch x 9.25inch x 1.59 inch - 23.5cm x 23.5cm x 4.5cm, the best size for it to be carried comfortably while still having enough food for the day!
it weighs less than 500 grams
The materials used are all premium and food safe! Made From the Highest Quality 100% Food Grade compliant, BPA Free Plastic
We made A LOT of design prototypes. We basically wanted the box to be simple, easy to use and have a smart, clean design you'd be proud to take anywhere. Every feature we thought of had to be incorporated into the design: the insulation, the cutlery, the optimum ratio and division between compartments.
As it's clear, a lot of effort has been put into designing this product. This design, combining wood with white materials has been inspired by Scandinavian products that are all over Pinterest. It has unique features smartly incorporated that no other lunchbox out there has. Every detail is placed with a clear reason and nothing is random.
With every Fittbo you get a spare set of gaskets, a salad dressing container! You'll get to choose the color when we send the surveys!
I’m Alan Alexandru, young designer, I've worked for some companies in the past, gaining a considerable amount of experience and understanding how a product is designed and implemented from the drawing board to the finished product. I finally got the courage to take this big step, leaving a comfy job to dedicate all my time creating products that would make life better. On this journey, i'm not alone. My friend Olivia is in charge of the marketing, keeps us organized, and makes sure everything gets done when it should.

Our first e-mails asking producers how to make this lunchbox date back to the summer of 2015!
This is our take on the lunchbox, and we really hope you’ll like it! Our goal is to create a food box that would be easy to carry and use, with an impeccable design.
Risks and challenges
Because this isn't a tech product or a very complicated product, production should go without major issues.
As with any first production run, there might be delays caused by unforeseen circumstances. We've taken a safe approach by setting our timeline, and we'll do our best to have the products shipped as soon as possible!
Also we intend to keep you in the loop on a constant basis, sending regular updates to keep you up-to-date with progress recorded!
