An eco-friendly version of an iconic design.

Originally designed in 1939 by Holger Nielsen, the Vipp Pedal Bin made waves with its innovative pedal-operated system. More recently, the Danish company introduced a series of lounge and office chairs, along with timeless lighting, kitchen designs, and a minimalist woodland retreat. Now, Vipp has launched a new version of the popular pedal bin that preserves the original design but enhances it with a sustainable, eco-friendly build. Named Rubbish, the limited-edition bin features 75% recycled materials that come from the company’s own furniture manufacturing factories.

To produce the bin, Vipp uses waste materials that include sawdust and plastic leftovers. Blended into a paste, they are then molded and glued together to create the bin’s body. A protective coating protects the surface of the bin while letting the concrete-like textures shine. On top, there’s a stainless steel lid which the user can operate by stepping on the pedal. Like the original bin, this one features two handles for easy mobility. A damper mechanism and a rubber ring ensure that the Rubbish bin keeps odors inside, while another rubber ring on the bottom protects flooring surfaces. Finally, Vipp sends this limited-edition bin in recycled and easily recyclable, FSC-certified packaging. Photographs © Vipp.
