GMK Bento R2

Back to Bento²

Bento is back for a second round! Biip has taken what was great in the first round and made it even better. The legends were created with simplicity and minimalism in mind, a signature way of Biips work. Having being attached to Iconography and Typography for many years as shown in Bushido, Miklshake and Cool Kids, he will make sure that Bento will yet again be the set of the year.

Bento R2 features more kits than ever, and 4 desk mats with 3 RAMA caps too! Sadly no macro-pad, but the extras are plentiful the way they are. You can get 6 total kits, 2 different Base Kits, a Latin Kit and 2 Novelty Kits, this will allow you to customize your set in ways that nobody else has it. The set comes as standard with ISO support and a 7U spacebar. You can select from a dark Bento set and a light Bento set. The Sakana Kit allows 40% compatibility and the Chopsticks kit is the spacebar kit allowing for split keyboard to be used with minimal cost.
