LANTERN Trash Can / Trash Can


Tradition trash can is unhandy to carry. Generally, it is a space-fixed appearance, no matter there is any garbage in it or not. Thus, we took Chinese lantern as the design concept. It can be squeezed and spread freely. We produce protruding on top layer slightly and groove at bottom. It will be easy to use by hand or foot. Also, the design helped people to stack multiple bins easily, and it determined its height by the amount of garbage in order to produce more space. Furthermore, it can be stored in a small volume to be carried easily whether going out or going on a picnic.
