Cranbrook Exhibit: Grace Youngeun Lee's Waste Bin

This is a remarkable design that we spotted in the Cranbrook booth (amazing BTW). An elegant trash can in two pieces that you open and close with your foot, made of powder coated steel. Closed pic below.

This design, by Grace Youngeun Lee, takes advantage of physics by identifying and using the fulcrum between the two halves. There are no extraneous moving parts.

"Waste Bin
By stepping on the pedal, the bin opens towards you- yet the cover remains stationary. This natural motion is emphasized through a graphic division of color and material."

For additional work, visit for Grace and for all the students' work.
