Lean, trash bin / trash bin

Lean, trash bin
Lean, trash bin

Unlike other trash bins in the market which function as a container out of a container (plastic bag itself), Lean simply provides users a neat yet strong structure to grip a plastic bag.
Y-shape body creates a strong 3 points structure between 2 walls and a negative space for plastic bag in the corner. Utilizing the weight of trash and itself, Lean can stand firmly in the corner.
Bag frame design makes the mouth of bag stay wide open and makes the bag replacement easier.
Lean not only provides users an innovative way to discard garbage, but also helps them utilize corner space more efficiently.
