The 'Design Your Bin' competition was launched last year and received over 1,000 creative designs from all over the world. Entrants were tasked with creating a new design for Brabantia's 30-litre Retro Bin range. The winning designs 'Pop Kitchen' and 'Kitchen Collage' will add a personal touch to your kitchen and are now for sale as part of a limited edition collection.
Dominic Marshall from Staffordshire is the winning designer behind 'Pop Kitchen'. Trained as a ceramic designer he now works as a freelance surface pattern designer and lectures at Staffordshire University on the Surface Pattern degree course.

Nostalgic with a contemporary twist, the palette of red, blue and white will create a warm and inviting touch to kitchens.
