for their new ‘bins’ series  czech studio design fabrika looked to the past to create functional, gritty pieces for the present.  the once ubiquitous metal bin, long since replaced by plastic receptacles, projects a raw functionality via its brazen steel construction.  once a feature of every street-scape, the humble garbage container moves indoors via seven iterations, including:  chair, stool, washbasin, ice bucket, footrest, dressing table and the all important keg station. the pieces maintain the proportions and character of their original purpose while creating items suited for a range of environs.
