CHIMNEY black & grey

Swedish Ninja


Tongue-in-cheek and eco-friendly: the quirky black and grey Chimney Paper Bin by Andréason & Leibel is made out of the very material it is designed as a receptacle for. Each foldable piece arrives flat-packed, but when assembled, it forms an eye-catching wastepaper basket designed to store paper goods for recycling. A clever gift idea for lovers of witty design.


Design Story +

Paper use can be a burden to the environment - the name Chimney is a reminder of that. But if it is used sensibly, paper is a extraordinary material to construct three-dimensional durable objects with small environmental footprints. Flat in transport and totally recyclable.

Designers Kristian Andréason and Kristin Leibel set up their studio after graduation 2000 in Gothenburg, Sweden. In the last five years they have been frequently featured at Swedish and International design exhibitions, showing their curiosity of new expressions in the borderline between minimalistic design and art. Beside various design assignments they now also have a small scale production facility just outside Malmö. Providing a space for their edition pieces but most importantly, a place for never ending experiments on form, function and the perception thereof.
