Zilio A&C, 2010

''Bring an wooden bin flat packed''



Maple plywood
spun aluminium

⌀ 220 mm x h 300 mm

Dove is a waste bin with wooden texture. By utilizing the flexibility and strength of sheet plywood, it minimise production process and the transport cost and associated CO2 emissions as it is shipped flat-packed.

Zilio A&C is located near Udine, has been supplying good quality wooden parts for Italian big players for more than 75 years.  Since the recent shift of manufacturing front to Eastern Europe and far East, this local network of factories has been struggling to servive.  I met a young successor of a factory, who is now trying to set up an own brand.  We designed this item to employ their precision wood fabrication.
