Waste bin

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!
