As a catering concept the takeaway is based on speed, order and efficiency. Now a widespread form of eating with a constantly expanding culinary range - a far remove from its earlier hamburger-dominated definition - the takeaway also makes considerable demands on the equipment designed for its consumption.
The publication "Take away" documents a century of design-related developments associated with eating on the move. Some 200 illustrations provide access to an apparently familiar yet often overlooked design world, full of aesthetic appeal, technological secrets and situational charm.
"Take away" is a book about design, but one which views the appreciation of aesthetic properties in the context of their historical, economic, technological, sociocultural and ecological backgrounds. The thematic focus on eating on the move puts design issues just where they belong: at the heart of our day-to-day existence.
