Bronze A' Design Award - Designer: Nikolas Baskozos - Competition - 2019
This litter bin design subtly refers to the form of an ancient Greek jar. An ancient terracotta jar was used for storing food or other things, while a trash can is also a temporary storage space for litter. By attributing to the ancient form appropriate and contemporary functionality, the new object becomes vivid, while it triggers memory recollection. The design approach is abstract and simple. Fiber reinforced concrete and stainless steel are the two materials used for the construction of this object. To replace the bin bag, at first, one has to open the stainless steel lid. A shutter of the waste hole prevents rainwater from entering the bin.
