Paper Bin ~
This prototype, a waste paper bin for offices, was originally designed for a waste exhibition at the 2009 Milan Design Week. Intended to turn a normally awkward and cumbersome process into light work, the Paper Bin’s utility is made clear by the design: thirty pleated paper containers nestled into each other for easy disposal. When the top container is full, it is simply removed, leaving the next bin liner behind as the receptacle. In order to maintain the structure of the whole, the outermost liner is slightly tougher than the others and a fabric elastic band is fastened around the outside. Paper should be the only thing disposed of in the bin or it may become damaged. Designed by Domenico Orefice and Riccardo Nannini, this prototype was exhibited as part of the Instant Design show at the Triennale di Milano.
