There's nothing rubbish about this new bin design

The Brabantia bin has become an iconic kitchen accessory, transforming daily chores into domestic pleasure

Who doesn't know the Brabantia bin? Say the word Brabantia to most people and they will instantly think of the classic column shaped bin with the soft close mechanism, that makes storing and depositing rubbish a little less dull.

There's a new Brabantia bin in town, the new Bo Touch Bin and it's a visual delight! Looking more like a sleek Dutch furniture piece, it doesn't look like a classic bin thanks to it's four elegantly tapered legs and cabinet-like design. There's the argument that you may not want your bin to be so showy but if you don't have an integrated design it's going to be on show anyway, so you might as well embrace it and go for a fabulous design.

'With its unique design, contemporary colours, and focus on sustainability, our revolutionary new Bo Touch Bin is spot on trend, says Romke Swinkels, Director of marketing and Innovation. 'It is the future of waste management', he goes on to say boldly.

Mucky little fingers needn't be a problem with the fingerprint proof Matt Steel version (above). It's these cleverly thought out elements that make Brabantia the leading brand for the everyday things, because the little things are taken into account.

The name derives from an old Norse nickname Bua meaning 'to live' – this new design is all about combining the practical with the beautiful.

A bright shade of sunshine yellow is just the thing to make anything rubbish seem a little bit brighter! This statement design is not for the faint hearted but we think it looks glorious in a modern kitchen scheme. The kitchen is a great place to have fun with splashes of colours on accessories.

From modest beginnings, back in 1919, Brabantia has become a household name thanks to its stylish approach to making everyday chores that little bit more enjoyable.

Will this new Bo Touch Bin become Brabantia's new design icon? We think so. We want one, we just can't decide which colour to go for?
