A huge thank you to everyone who took part in our 2012 Design Your Bin competition. We had 1,033 stunning designs and after much deliberation our International Design Panel have decided on a shortlist for the overall ‘Design Your Bin’ prize. We were also very privileged to have had expert design advice from top industry bloggers Yvestown, Decotendency, Stacey Sheppard and Happy Interior Blog, who formed part of the International Design Panel.
Here’s the shortlist…one of the designs pictured here will go into production in 2013!
Our next steps are to create prototypes of each of these bins to test with a consumer panel. The category winners will be sent these as a prize. As well as getting to see their design produced and on sale as part of our range next year, the overall winner selected by our international design panel will also receive a bin featuring their design and 1,500 Euros worth of Brabantia products too! The overall winner will be decided within two weeks!
Our second prize winner, ‘Most Popular Design’ as voted by the public, was the stunning green and yellow ‘Daizies’ from UK contestant Terrance, who has won Brabantia products worth 1,000 Euros, congratulations!
