You already know that you can buy a high-design chicken coop, a high-design cat bed, and a high-design doghouse. (Yes, they make fancy versions of all manners of pedestrian objects—and not just ones for pets.)
Today, we bring you the high-design version of the lowly trash can. The contents may be rubbish, but that doesn’t mean the container should be.
Single Master Waste Bin by Wesco, $128.99
We’re fond of the almond-colored power-coated steel on this handsome fella, though it also comes in white, black, and red. This one is 2 gallons, but it comes in other sizes.
VIPP Spot Bin by Damien Hirst, $475
If you weren’t impressed by the sleek lines of the traditional VIPP, perhaps one designed by a world-renowned artist will catch your eye. Damien Hirst’s colorful dots are a lot nicer to look at than the piece he made with the cow.
Spaceboy Waste Bin by Wesco, $349.99
How did you ever store your trash in something so backward-looking as a plain cylinder? This Spaceboy also comes in red, almond, and space-age “new silver.”
Korzina Garbage Can by Karim Rashid for Casamania, $325
Korzina sounds quite exotic, though in reality it’s close to the Russian word for “can”—but what a nice can! It also comes in pink, orange, blue, and silver.
Made of injection-molded polypropylene (plastic!), the Magis trash bin also comes in beige and black. You can get them in two sizes and in four-packs, each of the same color.
