This vessel is designed to specifically hold Americanized/Fusion Sushi, such as the California Roll, Rainbow Roll, etc. Its form makes references to both the traditional Japanese Sushi Boat, as well as the American-Japanese historical incident of 1853’s Matthew Perry Blackship Expedition (aka ‘Kurofune Raikou’).

Through design storytelling, Blackship invites the users to enjoy, and contemplate the history and culture behind the one food that they now learned to embrace.
