Kick/Push / Pedal bin


Kick/Push simplifies the pedal bin, reduces its parts and uses simple yet refined mechanics: The pedal wire runs in a recessed slot on the two sides of the bin. The wire is attached at the lid of the bin and if pushed down at the bottom, the lid is pulled down backwards and opens up. The bin can be used in variable ways with different inserts. The idea is to create a sense for sustainable design by implementing smart mechanics, saving material and production cost, thus operating economically and ecologically wise, not forgetting about beautiful classic design.
