Have you seen our brand new collaboration with ‘Queen of prints’ – Irish designer Orla Kiely?
Known for her retro-inspired lifestyle collection — which includes everything from ready-to-wear clothes to chic furniture — Kiely has designed a stylish print for one of our well-loved products. Her world-famous stem design has now taken root on our iconic Retro Brabantia Orla Kiely Bin Collection, with the sprig and leaf motif available in cream on charcoal with an orange lid, and charcoal on cream with a yellow lid.
The new capsule collection was officially launched on Friday 13th February at Potters Fields Park, next to Tower Bridge in London and at Ambiente in Germany. We celebrated the event with a larger-than-life big bin installation and an Orla-inspired VW camper van! Did you spot us?

Orla said: “Brabantia are a company that I have admired for many years. Their products are of a high quality and very functional. I was thrilled to have the opportunity to collaborate with them. We have added some fun to an object that we all use every day. I would be very happy to have one of the bins in my kitchen at home.”
The collection is already the talk of the interior world with super-stylish and inspirational interior guru Bright Bazaar‘s fab review and perfect photos. He’s already a huge fan, commenting:
“Brabantia’s latest collaboration with ‘Queen of prints’ Orla Kiely is one of my favourites to date. Of course, that extra splash of make-you-smile style yellow in the lid really sold it to me too!” Make sure you head over to his blog, it’s a must read!

The Retro Bin is more than just a pretty thing – it’s smart inside and out too! Open the lid with a light pedal tap and watch it close smooth and silently. It’s quiet, easy and extra hygienic to use, as you don’t need to touch the lid to open the bin. Brabantia Retro Bins come with a 10-year guarantee.
Mechteld Petersen, Value Director at Brabantia said: “Orla Kiely’s prints are influenced by the 1960s and ’70s, just like our Retro Bin. Being both contemporary and retro, we feel this bin and Orla’s design to be a perfect match.”
The Charcoal Linear and Cream Linear Stem designs are available in 12, 20 and 30 litre Retro Bins. The Orla Kiely Brabantia collection is available from leading retailers, independents and www.brabantia.com.
