Method - Beautiful Bins Method design and manufacture beautiful bins that make recycling a simple, stylish part of modern offices. Co-founders India and Steven Korner observed the poor quality of recycling solutions available for offices. They saw sophisticated environments with recycling an afterthought – in conflict with the aesthetic created by architects. With the increasing popularity of open plan offices and activity - based spaces they wanted a bin that was flexible and convenient, not hidden away in cupboards. ‘Design Thinking’ provided the framework for the research and design. Three years later the perfect office recycling bin was launched: a beautiful, functional and flexible solution, for recycling and rubbish. Designed to simplify the process of recycling and engage users, reducing waste to landfill.
