Trash cans haven’t changed much over time, but how we live has. We partnered with Newell Rubbermaid to create two new refuse management collections that solve for today’s unmet needs in both high traffic and more intimate public spaces.
One objective was to create cans attractive enough to not need hiding away; another was to make the product systems, called Configure and Enhance, each cohere visually as recognizable lines.
Configure is a modular solution for seamlessly sorting and separating multiple waste streams—plastics, metals, landfill, paper and compostables. Different facilities and locales present different sorting strategies, which traditional waste receptacles have trouble accomodating. Configure delivers a system designed for flexibility in size, color, materials and labeling so each station can be precisely tailored to fit the demands of unique circumstances.
The Enhance collection is designed to sync with the decor of its hospitality surroundings, no matter what aesthetic the bins land in. Modular construction allows for a variety of sizes and finishes at varying cost tiers, making the Enhance collection fit beautifully into a wide range of interiors and exteriors.
