Out of all the decorative items in your household, the trash can is probably at the bottom of the priority list in aesthetics for your interiors. After all, a trash can is used to throw away refuse and litter. Why does it need to have aesthetic appeal anyway?
The designer company Essey thinks you should embrace the idea of a decorative trash can in the form of ‘Bin Bin’. A trash can which resembles crumpled paper is a snazzy way to have your trash can stand out with the rest of your decor instead of being shoved under a cabinet.
Available in colors red, white, and black, Bin Bin is a colorful solution for throwing away trash that exudes creativity in its design. ‘Resembling a crumpled piece of waste paper, Bin Bin states its function from the moment you see it.’… Essey
The design has earned more than three international design awards and is proving to the world that trash doesn’t have to be forgotten when disposed of. Made from a rigid polyethelene in Germany, designer John Brauer should be proud of his non-traditional statement in home decor.
If you’re looking for a companion to the larger Bin Bin model, the Mini Bin Bin is available for small bathrooms or areas where space is premium. The smaller version is perfect for your tight space. Whether under your home office desk, in the kids playroom or in the guest bathroom, there is a Bin Bin size for every room of your home.

‘It was through Bin Bin that John Brauer realized it is the harmonizing of shape with function that creates true “Symbolic Functionalism”. Bin Bin set the benchmark for all future Essey products.’… Essey
The next time you look at your trash can as just another receptacle to hold refuse, think again, for Bin Bin has transformed the stereotypical ‘dirty’ canister into a design element that you will love to display for everyone to see.
