‘cup noodle matryoshka’ by nendo

‘cup noodle matryoshka’ is a special souvenir which japanese design studio nendo has developed for the nissin cup noodles museum in yokohama, japan. taking the instant noodle brand’s iconic packaging, nendo has devised a matryoshka-like container which opens up to reveal subsequent vessels within. each one stands in as one component ingredient of ramen noodles, finished with a color / look that relates to the contents it is meant to contain.

‘cup noodle’ pleases eaters with its taste; and our intention with this souvenir, is to entertain them visually.’ – nendo
