Minimal rubbish bin

Minimal rubbish bin

This minimal rubbish bin from Japanese designer Shigeichiro Takeuchi of Shigeichiro Studio has a wooden lid that tilts without a mechanism. The aluminium cylindrical body is simply cut diagonally and the mouth is covered with a wooden board.

Because the diagonal mouth is at a slightly different level, the lid can balance on it without additional components which also make it easily removable for emptying and cleaning.
