All good ideas with a twist that tells us as much about ourselves and our relationships with waste:
For those who must not have any contact with waste: Fabriano designed by Riccardo Nannini, Domenico Orefice
and Emanuele Pizzolorusso
Fabriano is a basket made entirely of recycled paper. The thin layers consist of 50 disposable bags and when the bin is full you just have to extract the bag and throw it away, the layer beneath is ready to collect more paper. The shape of a “muffin cup” is easy to produce and allows to obtain the shape of a classic office bin, as well as it gives a personality to it.
Of course, it is still about using up stuff (paper)...
For those with control fantasies: a bin that reads the bar code of the waste and opens the appropriate container (designed by Woo Seok Park http://www.yankodesign.com/2008/02/14/sort-and-separate/)
The aesthetics of crumpled paper: bin bin designed by John Brauer
For those who get stuck in the toilet?
