The Xylophone Bin by Dominic Wilcox. Designed for Danish company vipp's charity auction event in New York. Made from oak and steel the bin actually plays music.
When the pedal is pressed the lid opens, releasing a ball that travels down a 'helterskelter' set of xylophone steps around the bin. Each time the ball hits a step, a note is played. The xylophone steps are cut in increasing lengths so that the note gets deaper as the ball gets closer to the bottom.

They are on show at the Conran shop East 59th st, 1st ave, New York from 4th - 17thSeptember 08. Auction will be held on the 18th september 08. Check out see this bin in the action.

Rotator by Ron Arad

Rotator by Ron Arad
Home  |  Bath
Ron Arad has designed a bath for Italian manufacturers Teuco, which can rotate to become a shower. It can transform from bathtub to shower in just one quick rotation on the wall. When the fatter end of the unit is at the bottom, a person can step inside and sit as if they were in a tub. Should the occupant want to take a shower, all he/she has to do is turn the unit "upside-down" and new water (not the water that you bathed in) comes flowing down from the water outlet. Check out see the video and more pics.
