This wastepaper bin was designed by Design+Industry in Balmain, NSW, 2003 and moulded by Snaith Industries in Revesby, NSW, in 2005. It is part of the Classique Collection range of plastic homeware products consisting of storage bins, laundry basket, clothes hamper and the wastepaper bin. The Classique Collection range of products were designed to compete against imported products in the domestic mass consumer market. The price, design features, functionality and visual appeal were strategically targeted to this market. The range is distributed through retail outlets including Woolworths, Target, Big W and Kmart.

The wastepaper bin and other products in the range are designed to nest together to minimise the stacking space required on pallets during transport. The visual form was designed to be highly aesthetically pleasing, enhancing the perceived value of the product at a competitive price.
