Simple, sophisticated and elegant. Every detail of this bin is intentional. Designed by Shigeichiro Takeuchi in 2009, Swing Bin has no screws, gears or wires to tilt the lid. It consists of only two things: a cylinder with a diagonal cut and a wood lid that fits precisely. The cylindrical shape is formed by a split-mold, near-seamless method creating a perfect perpendicular line to the ground, then coated with a matte urethane creating a smooth texture. Made in Japan.
The Swing Bin won the 2011 Wallpaper* Design Award (UK), and was selected as one of the “Top 25 Products in Design Directory 2010-2011” by MONOCLE magazine.
