John Brauer's Bin Bin waste paper basket

"Fractal-ish" philosophy in John Brauer's Bin Bin

How come I didn’t see it before. I have a thing with cool designs for waste paper bins as they tend to be a central focusing piece in every study room or [home] office. Remember my previous article on  wastebasketball trash bin ? That one was brilliant in its playfulness, colors (not so much on the green side as it was soooo inviting to throw things at it) while John Brauer’s Bin Bin have some sort of fractal-inspired design, where the very bin resembles it’s content. Very intelligent and thoughtful design.

This one, just like the wastebasketball in the article linked above, has an eco-friendly downside: it’s made of polypropylene, a petroleum-based plastic. I wish designers would jump on the green train as boldly as their architects buddies do and try to design for recycling, design for good health and design for sustainability using eco-friendly materials and a minimal-energy production-minded manufacturing process.

Here you have a few pictures of this great design:
