See how "The Dustbin" is on the front end of a trend to design and manufacture locally. This could be huge for any product designer! In the Dustbin, a dustpan is cleverly incorporated as the trash can’s counterbalanced swinging lid. Working with Gordon Brush, Ravenhill designed a brush with inset magnets that affix it to the Dustbin, keeping all the tools for clean-up at the ready. It’s a clever, high-quality trash can that could last you the rest of your refuse-collecting life. And it’s completely designed and manufactured in Los Angeles.
