The Pedal bin
By Norm Architects for Menu
Part of the Norm Bath Series from Menu, the items share the same simple shapes that are inspired by perfectly rounded stones shaped by the forces of nature and cut by man.
The designers words about the Pedal bin:
"When we first started talking about bathroom-related products that needed improvement, the nuisances of the pedal-bin immediately came to mind. You know, that annoying “clonk” of the lid banging against the wall the second after you step on the pedal! We somehow had to counter this, and decided to design a beautiful “clonk-free” pedal-bin. This, however, was no mere matter of finding a standard bracket out there. Hours and hours of engineering were spent to come up with a mechanism able to make the lid open within its own perimeter. Along the way, the solution came to support our minimalist aesthetics and search for optimal hygiene in that we were able to hide the bracket inside the bin. This is our pedal-bin evolution.”
