City Context / Public Furniture

City Context
City Context

Maintaining a clean environment in a big city has always been a challenge. In order to achieve this, public waste containers are an indispensable infrastructure. This design combines a solar power street lamp with a bin. The bin is embedded inside the lamp, so pedestrians can easily find the bin by the lamp. This design encourages people to avoid littering and makes the city more user-friendly.

City Context bin is operated by a magnetic card. It’s easily managed by collectors and less likely to be knocked over by pedestrians or animals.
