Clean up with these versatile (and attractive) trash, recycling, laundry, and food storage bins featuring polished stainless-steel exteriors and air-suspension shock systems that allow lids to close slowly and quietly. And the California company doesn’t stop at bins: Keep the organization going with the adjustable shower caddies, dish racks, paper-towel holders and cabinet organizers. Every pick possesses the perfect blend of design and function.
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.
