Products tell stories. Through them, we can learn more about our past and present. The story of litter baskets around the world standard of a living urban organism. After centuries of usage and myriad designs, this urban furniture entails in itself the lives of all the people involved with it, from the coffeeholic pedestrian to the “invisible” sanitation worker. Now, it is time to tell a new story. One that envisions not the past, but the future, using straightforward design to aim towards a healthier culture around waste for the next 100 years. Bin X intends to improve the quality of life for those who live in the city. The progressive design is aiming to address street cleanliness, urban appearance, and recycling responsibility, all without neglecting the sanitation workers who empty the bins. The bin is designed for simple and cost-effective manufacturing. It is built for long life, ensuring it can be repaired and upgraded throughout its life cycle. The body of the bin is made of injection molded fire-retardant polyethylene and alloy steel. These materials are 100% recyclable and the bulky frame ensures a long life cycle.
