G.O.D. is the phonetic sound of the Cantonese slang "to live better”, the brand intends to capitalize on this phenomenon by providing an eastern derived lifestyle concept, as an alternative to the established Western way of living. To Define a New Asian Identity Asia's climate, diet, space and culture are different from the west, why shouldn't Asians live differently?

    Smart and useful. But the advantage of using the corner is minimized by its size. This should be 120cm or so, like a kitchen bin. That would be better for people with small apartments. Also there should be custom made bags.

    lovely waste basket, however more space would have been saved if the form wasn’t fluted as much… it doesn’t look that much more efficient than a slender cylinder shape. nonetheless, it’s a great concept with more of a sculptural quality than the similar Japanese +-0 trashcan. -http://plusminuszero.jp/collection/second/2nd06_trashcan.html
