Love It or Hate It? Ovetto Bin

Italian architect Gianluca Soldi, who is deeply involved with environmental issues, designed the Ovetto Bin ($255) to make recycling easier and more organized, offering three segregated divisions for your different types of recycling. A friend of mine has been advocating just this sort of thing for a while now, a functional recycling bin that makes recycling not a chore but a thoughtless routine. While I'm certainly pleased with the advent of an alternative to those useless blue office bins, I'm not keen on Ovetto's looks. I'm sure it jives with the design elite, but I'd like to call for something that blends in with the rest of our kitchens, not one that looks like a dinosaur egg/Saarinen table fusion. I want to see something so ordinary that its aesthetics are almost an afterthought, that aims to actually get people recycling rather than win design awards in Milano.
