There is nothing like throwing trash out in style, which The Dotted Vipp Bin encourages tremendously. Designed by internationally renowned British artist Damien Hirst, the garbage can boasts his famous dotted design. Playful, fresh and modern, this design updates the classic can beautifully. Originally designed by Danish craftsman Holger Nielsen in 1939, The Dotted Vipp Bin is a tribute to the first pedal bin that was supposed to remain in his wife's salon but instead took over the world.
The Dotted Vipp Bin was created exclusively for the opening of the Astrup Fearnley Museum in Oslo, Norway. A limited amount of garbage bins will be sold at this location. Hirst writes, "I’ve always loved colour, playing with colour, moving colours around. Designing a Vipp bin using spots makes the Vipp bin joyful."
