happy bin

Design Michel Charlot, 2016
Dyed-through polypropylene
Made by Vitra

Office accessories designed by Michel Charlot introduce unusual organic-shaped designs to the usually austere office environment. Inspired by cartoons and sculptures, the different containers add a cheerful touch that will brighten up any setting.

A sculpture by Hans Arp prompted Michel Charlot's design of the Happy Bin. While respecting industrial production methods and material properties, the slightly irregular shape of the waste paper bin was designed to appear almost to have grown naturally.

Happy Bin by Michel Charlot has a slightly irregular organic shape which gives the impression of a small sculpture. The waste paper bin is made of robust plastic and comes in two sizes and a selection of colors.

happy bin small: 11.5" h | 9.25" dia. | base: 7" dia.
happy bin large: 14.75" h | 11.75" dia. | base: 9" dia.
