This beautiful minimalist bin, designed by Japanese designer Shigeichiro Takeuchi, consists of nothing more than a cylindrical body and a wooden lid – but no moving parts added. The wooden lid tilts without a mechanism; it just balances on the diagonal cut of the cylinder. The shapes and angles doing all the work. And although it consists of just two parts, the bin definitely has its own identity.

This waste bin is designed by Grace Youngeun Lee, who’s a 3D Design student at the Cranbrook Academy of Art in Michigan, USA. The elegance of Lee’s bin is multi-level. It consists of two only pieces, and has no breakable elements like hinges. The latter is thanks to Lee’s smart design: By stepping on the pedal, the bin opens towards you – yet the cover remains stationary. Nice one!
