BOSS & MINI BOSS – INSPIRED BY NATURE
During Stockholm Furniture Fair, February 6-10, Swedish design company Lammhults launches designer Tuva Rivedal Tjugens waste paper bins Boss and Mini Boss in ash veneer.
As a result of Lammhults X-WORKS project, where five design students were chosen to have access to Lammhults product development team during a year, Boss & Mini Boss, two playful waste paper bins with associations to nature were launched autumn 2017.
In addition to the existing waste paper bins in powder coated steel sheet, they are now launched in ash veneer to give a slightly softer and more organic expression.
Tuva Rivedal Tjugen, about Boss: “Boss is a waste paper bin focusing on recycling. It’s designed to give associations to nature, with the hope that it will inspire people to take care of our environment.”
The choice of the ambigious name ”Boss” which means rubbish in norwegian concludes Tuva’s vision for the product. It should be obvious to throw your rubbish in the bin and to achive that it needs to demand attention in its surroundings, ”like a boss”.
Boss and Mini Boss are made of thin steel sheet, powder coated in a number of colors, and has a matching lid alternatively in natural or black stained ash veneer with a powder coated lid. A lid in polished brass is also available for a more exklusive touch. All have a removable lid that covers the waste bag in a simple and neat way. The large bin contains a removable bucket that collects any liquid.
By combining a clear but organic expression, Boss stands out and catches the eye creating an inviting and fresh contribution in its surroundings. The waste paper bin comes in two sizes, the larger one is well suited for public environments and offices and the smaller one, Mini Boss, is an excellent choice for the personal workplace or home office. Separation at source can be clarified by selecting different colors on the bins for different materials.
