Swing Bin by Shigeichiro Takeuchi

Looks like a modern sculpture, the Swing Bin is a minimalist waste bin created by Japanese designer Shigeichiro Takeuchi with clever idea.

It has simple cylinder-shape, but its true uniqueness is the diagonal opening has been dramatically cut with a wooden lid, a lid that swings and tilts with no screws, gears or wires.
