Designed by Jasper Morrison, the Gettacarte waste-paper bin is made of a leaf of natural beach plywood that has been shaped into a cone and fastened with three beech wood buttons. The base is made of birch plywood.
Born in London in 1959, he graduated at the Royal College of Art and established his first design office in 1986. Immediately after this, he began his lasting and useful cooperation with Cappellini; nowadays, he works in London and in Paris for high level companies such as Alessi, Flos, Rowenta, Sony and Samsung. Each Morrison’s project has a minimal elegance which makes it strongly modern beeing a sort of archetype linked to past, favouring function on expression.
