flora / waste bin with lock system

flora
flora

flora is a dustbin with lock system for stinky trash like diapers, cat litter or organic waste.
To keep bad smell from the user there are two locks to be opened separably through a pedal mechanism which allows a convenient single-hand control. No smell from the inside of the bin can get directly to the outside as both locks are never opened at the same time. The trash bag is covering the lower threepart-lock to prevent dirt on plastic parts.
As the trash can looks like an opening flower it bears the name flora.
