Why We Chose This
Continuing our commitment to designs that encourage recycling, we chose this compact trash can so that even people who live in smaller spaces can recycle with ease. Its innovative ventilated carbon filter technology allows air to pass through the filter to reduce moisture, the main cause of unpleasant odors.
Function plays a large role in defining good design. When designers look at an object, they don't just consider its aesthetic appearance—they should also challenge it to be more versatile, to respond to the user's need, or to achieve its purpose more elegantly. Good design has the capacity to solve problems that sometimes we didn't even know we had. This is one of the ways design touches and enriches our everyday life.
