A tribute to Herzog & de Meuron.
The idea is to make a dustbin out of the waste it normally contains. According to the huge consume of A4 paper everyday, the shape and the size of the dustbin was soon decided. A pile of all kinds of waste paper of A4 was collected and arranged in such an order which makes the dustbin have a similar profile like plywood. All paper of the dustbin is connected from the inside by glue, which makes the inner water-resistant. The loose suface of the outside is quite convenient to grip. The leftover from the making of the dustbin is made into many notebooks, so that they would be reconnected with the dustbin during use.
