Wesco Spaceboy 8 Gal Almond

When Egbert Neuhaus visited the U.S. as a German exchange student in the ’70s, he came across an aluminium household rubbish bin—and fell in love. He brought the idea home to Wesco, his father’s metal manufacturing company in Germany, which got to work redesigning the device. The distinctive, industrial-strength result has inspired an entire family of products, including this Spaceboy rubbish bin. Made of powder-coated sheet steel, the rocket-shaped receptacle has a removable metal liner and stainless steel flap that seals off odours.
