Paul Smith designs new rubbish bins for trial round London. Apparently, his ears light up when you drop stuff in (not Sir Paul’s…)

The Design Museum has teamed up with various design boffins including Zaha Hadid and Tom Dixon to create 15 new design icons for London. Above is the new style bin, what’s the hell is coming next?  Visit ‘Super Contemporary’ the Design Museum’s new exhibition starting 3rd June showcasing all 15.

    Not sure about these- judging from the photo their in Covent Garden, right? Bulky bins in crowded places? Not the best design really. Plus that eyeless rabbit is just giving me the fucking creeps.

    yep the bunny’s ear light up apparently – went to the see the original at the Super Contemporray Exhibition (London Design Museum) and it was really great… all artists are celebrating London and it’s design story. I would recommend it and there also happens to be this ticket giveaway http://www.supercontemporary.co.uk/?s=ticket-giveaway to see exhibition. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did …
