WIPE OFF / Waste paper basket


"Wipe off" is a waste paper bin, with two arms for hanging up itself beside the desk. "Wipe off" aims to help to clean small pieces from the table easily into the trash bin with ease and less effort.

For example, after doing some paper cutting work, user can wipe off all the small pieces of paper to the bin directly. Furthermore, after we use the eraser, we naturally wipe off the eraser dust by hand. So "Wipe off" is inspired exactly by the natural movement of cleaning the small dust. It quietly and modestly stays beside the desk, and users can directly wipe off the eraser dust into the waste bin without having to think about it.
