2009

Street furniture manufacturers Veksø and C.F. Møller Design have launched the solar-driven waste bin Nanok that glows in the dark, and automatically compacts its contents.

This means up to 80% reduction in waste-collection frequency, similarly reducing costs and environmental impacts. The ambition was to achieve a subtle balance between the need for visibility on one hand, and on the other the need for an understated design, as it is required when the product will be found in the urban domain in numbers amongst other urban furniture. The visible solar-panel indicates that it is a green product, and the soft glow of the top gives a strong impression of an intelligent and technologically advanced product – even in the dark.
