It’s surprising that something as important as a garbage can is so often undervalued by the design world. Not so for simplehuman, a modern lifestyle brand that boasts an extensive catalog of versatile, multifunction trash bins. These include extra-tall cans and compartmentalized recycling units for kitchen use, some of which feature fingerprint-resistant outer coatings. There are also small, lidded versions for the office, plus takes featuring a high-tech sensor and a built-in deodorizer. The California-based company also designs its own size-specific trash bags, plus a slew of other domestic essentials for kitchen, bath, and laundry rooms: soap dispensers with sensor pumps, clever dish racks, and much more. Simplehuman transformed the trash can with the introduction of its innovative stainless steel “butterfly” step can in 2000; today, the brand continues to design everyday tools to help people become more efficient at home.
