Paper Paper Bin by Clara von Zweigbergk

A prime example of Swedish designer Clara von Zweigbergk’s signature use of bold colours and her facility with folding paper into beautiful and practical designs, the Paper Paper Bin is a playful wastepaper bin that will brighten up any room. Made from FSC-certified recycled paper, the Paper Paper Bin’s protective coating means it can be used for many kinds of waste disposal as well as serving decorative and storage purposes, and it is available in a handful of contrasting colour combinations.
