Apple even holds the patent for a circular pizza box!

Posted May 17, 2017

The pizza box, or rather, a pizza circle, due to its shape, will be used in the company's cafeteria located in the brand-new campus. "Allowing such steam to escape from within the container further ensuring that the pizza does not become soggy through the re-absorption of moisture".

Apple's widely awaited new campus is finally ready, and it's exactly like what you'd expect.

Apple's latest innovation actually has a sound design trick. According to Wired, it will function as a portable solution for employees to take the pizza from the cafeteria back to their desks. It also details the "concentric ridges" that provide structural support, the box's "locking mechanism" and how much more environmentally friendly the box is than traditional models.

The pizza box was designed in 2012, describes how the box can be easily stacked and features a "plurality of ridges", "allowing moisture expelled from the food item to be transported away from the food item". Apparently, Apple has invented-and patented-a revolutionary new kind of pizza box that makes the old-fashioned cardboard crap that we have now look like, well, cardboard crap. The circular pizza boxes, which have been invented by Francesco Longoni (the head of Apple's food services team), have always been in circulation at the company's existing campuses.

The inventors of the cylindrical pizza box must have thought it very brilliant that they applied a patent for its design in 2010. The innovation isn't creating the paper bag itself, which has such high proportions (around 60 percent) of recycled content. The Verge on Tuesday dug up the actual patent, which includes sketches of the box. That's just great, ain't it?
