Mag is a minimal wastebasket created by Italy-based designer Alessandro Di Prisco for Geelli. The designer graduated from Naples’ Università Federico II, and appreciates the amalgamation of R&D with his passion for the visual arts and design. The wastebasket is constructed of integral polyurethane, a focus for the brand specializing in producing products in polyurethane gel.
The polyurethane material is soft to the touch, and will return to its original shape even after stressing or pushing against it. The designer wanted to create a universal wastebasket that would be durable for any space, including the office, bathroom, or living room.
The design can also be used as a container – two magnets are placed at the top of the bin that allows the wastebasket to close. Mag is currently available in a number of color variations including: Bosco, Cotto, Light Grey, Grey Shadow, Black, Sand, and Tortora.
