Danish trash can design company Vipp is giving new meaning to the word bombastic.
The company best known for the 1939 design of the Vipp Pedal Bin, unveiled a series of eight “couture” designs for their iconic trash cans. The designs, by Berlin designer Lessja Verlingieri of Lever Couture, took around 400 hours to complete and utilized 1400 (!) meters of fabric. The company’s word for their creation? “Trashion.”
Each of the designs is based on an outfit that Lever Couture had previously created for one of her clients, which include Lady Gaga and Gwyneth Paltrow. Verlingieri said it was a creative challenge to alter her designs for trash bins.
“But,” she points out, “the Vipp pedal bins have a great shape and they are the stars among pedal bins.”
The Trashion Bins are available at the Vipp Flagship Store in Copenhagen and will retail for 3500-5000 euros. If you’re considering purchasing one, we’d recommend buying a second regular Pedal Bin for actual, you know, trash.
