POUBELLIE / Wastepaper basket


Poubellie is a wastepaper basket with an own character. If you threw paper into the wastepaper basket, it starts to wobble and after a few seconds poubellie stays in the basic position again. At the ground of the bottom is a straight flat to reach the upright position again and again. There‘s a weight in the middle to make it wobble in an optimal way. So it‘s a design object with a funny function. It‘s not only for the office, you can use it in living rooms, child‘s rooms or weherever you want.
