Bin Bin Wastebasket - John Brauer


A simple, modernist wastebasket design by John Baruer that is made to mirror its contents. The polyethylene design means its durable, however not suitable for "messy" bin contents. As the aesthetics suggest, this product is aimed at containing office waste.

At $69, this product is designed from a heavily aesthetic viewpoint, with ergonomics being a secondary consideration. I purchased this myself after refurbishing my room and have received many compliments on it, so I'll provide a link at the bottom of this post.

From now on I'm going to be aiming at one post per day, so stay tuned!

  7. Almost $70 for a trash bin? That looks like it should be in a trash bin itself?

    I don't know. It's neat, but that's super expensive even if it is somewhat artistic.

  9. A bit pricey, but definitely a sweet looking trash can. I could use a spice upped one in my room...

  13. pretty unique looking i guess, but i personally don't think its worth the $69, especially considering i just bought one at walmart for $4.88 haha

    ReplyDelete
  14. I'd rather make one than pay that much for it. That's a good idea though, get a large sheet of paper and lay it inside of a basket you already have. A quick way to shape the paper.

  15. A friend of mine has one of these in his house. Or at least a knockoff, i doubt he'd spend that much for a trash can.
