Bath Pedal Bin
Bath Pedal Bin
Designer Norm Architects
The Audo Pedal Bin, a staple design created by Norm Architects, is now available in two additions at both ends of the size spectrum: a compact 4L and capacious 30L version. The 4L version makes it possible to add a bin to even the most space-constrained spots, while the high-volume 30L version elegantly manages litter in larger areas.
A well-conceived design whose thoughtful simplicity has made it a favourite in spaces both public and private, the Audo Pedal Bin is an essential part of the aesthetically and functionally unified Audo Bath Series. The bin ties into the collection’s common visual thread of clean lines and rounded edges: a quintessential expression of Norm Architect’s ability to bring softness to modern minimalism.
The Pedal Bin’s lid opens and closes smoothly and silently with a quick push of the pedal and with a lock system that is beautifully hidden inside the bin. Modern materials, including the powder-coated steel body and mirror-polished, stainless steel lid, combine aesthetics, endurance, and tactility. The removable plastic liner is easy to clean and features a smart bag lock.
With the new additions, the Pedal Bin family now comprises the following sizes to match any need: 4L, 7L, 11L, 20L and 30L. All are available in black and white to also match any space.
And while the design is part of a collection called the Bath Series, you’re welcome to use it in bedrooms, kitchens, offices, or any other corner you see fit.
Founded in Copenhagen in 2008 by Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen and Kasper Rønn, Norm Architects specialise in residential architecture, commercial interiors, industrial design, photography and art direction. The name, Norm Architects, reflects the group’s emphasis on the importance of drawing inspiration from norms and traditions within architecture and design – particularly the Scandinavian design principles of timeless aesthetics and natural materials, and the modernist values of restraint and refinement. Guided by these principles, Norm Architects produce a design that unites materials and craftsmanship, while embodying beauty, history and, most importantly, timeless simplicity, where there is nothing more to add or take away. Today, the group regularly collaborates with Audo Copenhagen, helping to drive the evolution of the brand and its product offerings —imbued with the same intrinsic quality as Norms creative direction: a simplicity that carries bigger ideas. Lead by the body and mind rather than by trends or technology, their projects explore ideas that not only look good but that also feel good: architecture becomes thoughtful, minimalism acquires softness and visual matter assumes haptic qualities.
