Pedal Bin


Thanks to the Brabantia Pedal Bin, the next time someone accuses you of trash-talking, you can take it as a compliment. First introduced in 1947 in Aalst, Netherlands, the swift pedal function transformed the malodorous trash bin, giving people a sleek new way to keep their paws off last night’s herring. Inspired by the basic shape of the original wastepaper basket, Brabantia brought in corrosion-resistant metal and a plastic inner bucket. Once the province of master craftsman, it’s now mass produced and as ubiquitous in modern kitchens as organic eggs.
