garbage cans turned into ‘living containers’ by philipp stingl



as the demographic evolution in germany and other countries becomes more dramatic, social systems will collapse and
from the ashes an aging society will rise, marked by crime, sickness and poverty. developed by german designer philipp stingl,
these products designed for the homeless and elderly population presents¬†‘house containers’ consisting of disposable trashboxes,
drinking water canisters, freighthold and a lockable livingspace with sewage systems. essentially, these ‘living containers’
testify to an active and creative lifestyle for the old age without compromises.
