Deconstructing Product Design
I don’t think this product is amazingly designed in terms of form or affords better usability than other trash cans on the market; I think it is representative of a shift in a design paradigm of increasing product presence through Brand;I would say this product is going to have an equivalent presence in design history that is comparable to Poul Henningsen’s PH lamp; it will appear in homes everywhere.
That its bio-degradable plastic, designed for existing bags/liners, comes in abundant colors, easy to pick-up, carry, empty, and clean — fulfills all of my functional demands. Aesthetically, it is proportionally resolved as an organic (“blobject” these days) shape, and offers a pleasing alternative to the cylinder. Kudos Karim!
