Talking trash (about design)

Paul Loebach and Chris Specce

Pleated Paper Can
Medium: Biodegradable and 100-percent recyclable waxed paper
Dimensions: 10” diameter x 13” high


The Pleated Paper Can takes its cue from disposable paper condiment cups. These ubiquitous everyday objects are superb examples of good disposable design: their economic use of material is underscored by a simple and sturdy folded construction. The Pleated Paper Can does not require a garbage bag. Instead, you can use it until you are through, and put the entire can out with the garbage.
