Arkiv is together with Arkityp and Arkad part of an elegant product series for waste disposal, perfectly adapted to stand together, or alone. The aesthetic is based on the archetype waste bin, but with playful and thoughtful details added. Typical function with atypical shape.
Arkiv has handles in solid birch on two sides for maximal function and movement. Like its sibling Arkad it comes with a variety of add-ons, like symbols and texts in different languages, as well as lids for recycling and paper. It’s available in Signal White, Antracit, Terracotta, Pale Green, Latte and Deep Burgundy, with a volume of 100 liters or about 26 gallons. The finish is slightly roughened lacquered metallic with a matte finish.
The product was awarded with German Design Award in 2019.
“The design translates the classic waste bin into an original dustbin design for offices that becomes an eye-catcher in any office setting thanks to its clear, elegant shape and fun details. A nice idea for an area that has unattractive dustbins.”
