Swing Bin is the stunning result of tireless effort, thought, and passion poured into a seemingly mundane everyday object like the trash can. A two piece design, Swing Bin consists of a wooden lid and ABS can – white with maple or black with walnut – that come together with no hinge, mechanism, or moving parts of any kind. Instead, the cleverly balanced lid sits on a slight cutout in the tube, swinging down when pressed before closing slowly with a light, satisfying click. And while it won’t hold a trash bag, relegating it to recycling or cleaner waste duties, its crevasse-free design and cover that comes right off greatly simplifies cleaning should the need arise.
