Pedersen + Lennard Storage Bins

As our annual Small Spaces issue is almost out, it's a good time to start thinking about clever storage solutions to reduce clutter and optimise room in compact living areas. Enter these lovely bread and recycle bins from talented design duo Pedersen and Lennard. With their sleek outer appearance, these space-saving pieces effectively echo the ethos of the creative company’s aesthetic – simple and functional yet stylish and fun. In fact, both items take practical to an entirely new level. Not only is this nifty bread bin - made of birch and mild steel - perfect for putting away your pastries, but it also moonlights as a recipe book stand when open. And the fabulous range of galvanised steel recycle bins, designed specifically to introduce the recycling habit into every home, can be conveniently colour coded to make the job of green living just that much easier. What’s more, both storage products also come in a range of fun hues, including jade green which happens to be right on trend for 2012. What better way to brighten up a kitchen than with a quirky pop of this eye-catching colour? So, combine storage with sophistication and systematise your space in style… To have a look at the breadbin (R580) or recycle bin (R395), stop by the Pedersen + Lennard showroom at the Field Office, Cape Town, or visit Text: Dayle Kavonic
