A Korean design studio LufDesign come out with the idea of combining a dustpan and a dustbin into one hybrid product. It’s imaginatively named DustPan+Bin. By simply turning the contraption 90 degrees, the dust pan is converted into a dust bin and vice versa.
While it’s an interesting concept, there’s a lot of room for improvement. Turning the trash can while its filled with rubbish might cause the contents to fall out. Furthermore, the ramp edge has a sudden high incline and not made levelled to the floor so sweeping smaller junk into the pan looks like a challenging task.
