SKINNY MESH CAN NICKEL

Designer:  David Quan, Karim Rashid

$13.00

Whether its for the powder room or under a small office desk, this can is designed to fit almost any tight space in the home or office.

DESIGN INSPIRATION: When I first designed the SKINNY CAN, I was focused on a plastic can, with aesthetics derived from its functional characteristics. The versatility of this design however, has led to even more uses and applications. Constructing the skinny can from mesh allows you to easily see the contents; great for use as a magazine holder, mail / file folder organizer or office can. The mesh pattern creates a beautifully textured surface that looks both thin and strong at the same time.
