Basket - Battery

The concept of the ‘Basket Battery’ bin came from our daily forgetfulness when it comes to taking out the trash or emptying the bin. For this design I chose the iconic battery of the electronic devices we use every day and took the idea behind it: green means the battery is full, yellow that it is half-spent, red that it is about to shut down; in this case, the bin glows green when it is empty, yellow when it is half-full, and red when it is overflowing. In order for the colour to change, the bin is provided with a scale which is located at the base of the product. Basket Battery can be placed either indoors or outdoors, since it is composed of waterproof materials and it is sealed with a special UV glue which reacts to UV rays.
