"Design is the driving force behind everything we create," says industrial designer Liam de la Bedoyere. In his case, that applies to both work and play; while he's the full-time Lead Designer at a UK-based tableware company, on the side he regularly executes self-directed design projects, posting them under his alter ego, Bored Eye Design.
A fine example is his Dusty, a garbage can with integrated storage for a brush and dustpan:
"Inspired by the design philosophy of Muji, who aims to simplify and enhance the functionality of everyday objects."
"The handle of the dustpan clips to the bins pedal operated lid, stored inside the brush, ready to be used when needed."
"Dusty challenges the conventional perception of utility objects and combines them into one harmonious form."
