Railo Waste Paper Bin by Mikko Laakkonen

I would have never thought that you need a designer for getting a nice-looking waste-paper bin and that such a designer can actually get an international award for designing a bin. Apparently all that i have just stated is perfectly true and I have found out that by surfing the designers’ page from Casamania, a famous Italian design web site.  Well, after reading the description and looking at the pictures carefully, I realized that I actually loved the bin, as it was original and interesting, with an unusual, yet attractive shape. The name of the bin is Railo waste-paper bin and the designer who was inspired enough to make it is called Mikko Laakkonen.

The bin is made of colored metal and has three plates that have some space between them, like three deep ditches. That makes the bin perfect for being used as a deposit for magazines and newspapers. These three parts of the bin can be painted in different colors or in the same color. The model is available in white, green, gray, black and combinations of them. The project designer was awarded “Young designer of the year 2009″, so it’s pretty cool.
