Octa Trash Bin :: Adonde

Possibly one of the coolest waste paper baskets around, the Octa trash bin is the newest creation from French design studio Adonde (whose lighting and vase collections are still some of my favorite).  Made of recycled cardboard, this geometric bin ships flat and folds together -- and is the perfect accessory* for a quirky modern office!  Available in 5 colors.

Octa Trashbin by Adonde: $30

*You could totally use these as storage containers too, not just trash cans!
