litter bin for seperate waste collection
inviting design encourages user behavior
Within the frame of a new environmental system, Studio DenHartogMusch designed a litter bin for the Noorder Dierenpark in Emmen. An important requirement was that the bin should invite visitors to start seperating their waste. The design is based on a configuration of several bins, slightly leaning forward, with the type of waste indicated by a coloured sticker at the lid. The design is succesfully sold by Promens and placed in many parks in the Netherlands and Germany.
In cooperation with ergonomist Marieke Sonneveld and architect Ernst von Meijenfeld.
