Created by Northern artist and inventor Dominic Wilcox, this bin looks more like a mini staircase to heaven than a functional kitchen product.
Rather cleverly, the beautiful exterior compiled of wooden slabs, holds a little secret! When the pedal is pressed and the lid opens,a small metal ball comes up from the top of the bin and bounces down the wooden “helter-skelter” to reveal the beautiful sound of a xylophone. What a delicate and majestic twist on modern-day waste disposal.
Have a look on Dominic’s website to see videos and pictures of the “Xylophone Bin”. Enjoy!
