How Bin Bin was initialised and developed

08/04/2013

It all began with a mistake. I was on my way home from Munich and bought a French interior magazine for the flight. At home my wife was skimming through it during cooking. “This is a good idea”, she suddenly said. “What is a good idea?” I replied. “A paper bin that resembles crumpled paper!” she continued. “No”, I said, “it is not a crumpled paper bin but an acrylic cylinder filled with crumpled paper to illustrate the purpose. If the photographer was only filming the cylinder it had looked like a water glass… but your idea is great!”

The most natural way to resemble crumpled paper is to crumple paper. So the designer glued small paper cups and then crumpled them and unfolded them again. After 2-300 the desired shape emerged – a perfect balance between chaos and harmony.

The small crumpled paper cup was scanned in a 3D scanner.

The 3D model is cleaned and corrected in many ways.

Bin Bin is white, red and black – the three traditional design colours. Most popular one has been the white one.
