something else made of cork that has caught my eye (after the recent giraffe divider): these ceramic bins, by swiss designer tomas kral. called 'clown nose' (after their inspiration), i like how the cork balls sit on one side to seal it, and on the other when it's open.

i'm not sure i would have ever thought of ceramic as a material for a waste paper bin, but it looks really nice, especially the matt finish. let's just hope it's not too hard to empty!
