When the local government of Hungary was looking for a motivational campaign to get dog owners to dispose off the dog poo from the streets, little did they know that the prize-winning entry Curve would garner so much support and enthusiasm. The trashcan designed by Krs Benedek – Ben Koros has a fun and intriguing way of dumping the waste. Read on to know more.
Ben explains, The biggest problem with dog waste disposal cans is, that they fill up on domestic rubbish way before time – thus even responsible dog owners can’t dispose their pet’s waste. I’ve tried to design a can, which doesn’t allow bottles, bags full of trash, empty boxes etc. to be dropped inside. The user must pick up the poo, place it in a plastic bag (biologically degradable plastic bags included on the Curve), and lead it through a curvy gap on the top, to be able to dump it.

Of all the skateboard deck and skateboard sport related furniture I’ve seen in all my years of seeing such things in my line of work, I have never, ever, seen something so wild as this. This is the strangest, wildest, most wacky piece of skateboard furniture I have ever seen. It tops both the categories of skateboard related AND skateboard constructed (meaning there’s skateboard parts included) furniture. Tops. Wild.
This amalgamation is called PigZig 2.0 and it’s meant to be a hallway table. The “over vertical” element (the two big swoops piece) is made of hand fabricated stainless steel. Maple skateboard decks on top, 369 Independent trucks holding 75mm BigZig lime green wheels on the bottom.
Whether you plan on placing some glasses of caffeine-laced soda pop on top or dropping this into a halfpipe with you on top of it, please, PLEASE use nothing but caution. So, so much of it.
