Competition: five Roll-Up Bins by Michel Charlot and L&Z to be won

Charlot’s U-turn spotlight lamp, designed in collaboration with Belux, was awarded the 2014 Design Preis Schweiz – a Swiss design award for industrial products. Competition closes 9 January 2015. Each of the Roll-Up Bins is packaged in a thin cardboard tube similar to a bin bag, and can be unfurled when removed from this container. When unfolded, the bins have the appearance of neatly folded, glossy, thick plastic bags formed into slightly skewed pots. Although flexible, each Roll-Up Bin is cast from tough, PVC-free TPU plastic and can free-stand securely on the ground. Established in 2011, Berlin-based LZ specialises in developing and manufacturing products for the work place. Available in a range of simple block colours, the bins can hold between 10 and 30 litres of contents and fold up or down allow them to be adapted for   different uses   including a bin for waste, a plant pot, a toy basket or a general container. These can be extended or shortened by the user, or rolled up again for easy storage when not in use. Winners’ names will be published in a future edition of our Dezeen Mail newsletter and at the top of this page. Dezeen competitions are international and entries are accepted from readers in any country. Industrial designer Michel Charlot graduated from the ECAL school of art and design in Lausanne in 2009, where he now teaches.
