At Brabantia, we’re all about the stylish and the colourful. Not only have we designed bins that are beautiful, bold and on-trend, but we’ve collaborated with top talent such as our fab design competition winners, as well as the ‘queen of prints’ herself, Orla Kiely. With such a wide range of stylish bins, there’s one to suit everyone’s interior style, here are some of our favourites…
Our collection of ‘Pauline’ print bins are the result of our 2013 ‘Pimp Our Print’ design competition. The winning design was created by Pauline Bogaards, a Junior Communications and Art-Director based in the Netherlands. We loved this handcrafted feathers design and so selected it as the winner from a pool of 2,800 entries from designers across the globe! This fashion-forward design is available in both graphic monochrome and vibrant colours, allowing the print to suit both subtle and bold interior styles. Pauline is available as both a touch bin and pedal bin.
“On a train journey I saw a girl with a nice feather on her necklace and from that one moment of inspiration came the winning design!” – Pauline Bogaards on design inspiration.
Our most well-known collaboration was with Irish designer Orla Kiely. We were thrilled to collaborate with such an iconic designer, producing beautiful bins with her famous retro print, the perfect match for our retro bins! Orla’s designs can be found on a wide range of lifestyle products from clothes to stationary and furniture, so naturally we were incredibly excited to launch our fashionable Brabantia collection of designer bins! So excited, in fact, that we decided to build a three metre high Orla bin in the middle of London for the launch event! Our Orla Kiely pedal bins come in both yellow and cream and orange and charcoal, and can be chosen from three different sizes to suit your needs. Check out HOP Design Studio’s mood board to see other items coordinating with your Orla bin!
“It’s a perfect collaboration. I wanted to add some colour and fun to an essential object that we use every day” – Orla Kiely, speaking as part of our Design Insights interview.
As well as being passionate about prints, here at Brabantia we can’t get enough of colour! Our colourful FlipBin collection is all about bringing colour into your home to create eye-catching interior spaces with both a stylish and practical bin. These bins suit bright, colourful homes as well as more natural interiors as statement colour pop pieces. Keep it chic with white, sleek with metallic mint or vibrant with passion red.

Our Mineral collection is suited to those who are all about subtle tones. These super-stylish bins come in blue, pink and mint, and provide the home with a sense of understated luxury. The mineral colours are now also on our space saving FlatBack+ bins, in addition to our push and retro pedal bins.
