Leave it to the Italians to create a sexy recycling bin. This egg shaped object, designed by Gianluca Soldi and Italian architect Gianluca Slodi, give new life to the ever-present blue and boring standard issue. The product, called the Ovetto (little egg in Italian) is made of recycled polypropylene.
I'm not sure this particular design matches the decor in my office, but it's directionally on the right track. Why should trash bins be hidden in cabinets when they can look this good. And what a great conversation starter about recycling!
