Leave it to the Swiss to develop a waste bin that’s as functional as it is nice to look at. If I had a potting shed to speak of, I’d be tempted to outfit it with the whole catalog of lidded receptacles from Patent Ochsner’s line of hard-working bins. The cans are so stately that it seems a shame to relegate them to refuse duty, only. The designers understand the impulse to have the cans multitask; they’ve designed a beech wood seat and cushion that turns a trash can into a throne. Cleanup is tiring work, after all. I’d fill my cans with potting soil, compost, and fertilizer.

No need to wrestle the lid while scooping potting soil, because the beechwood and steel handle can be lifted to function as a prop for the lid.
Above: The Compact with Sweep Set boasts FSC-certified beechwood and horsehair. It’s available for 278 SFR.
