When Enzo Mari designed this waste-paper basket in 1971, he must have been thinking of stressed white collar workers. "In Attesa" means "awaiting", probably one should add: "paper".
It leans towards the one throwing in order to catch the waste which is thrown at it - the thrower has more success than with any other waste-paper basket.
The leaning waste-paper basket "in Attesa" is one of Enzo Mari's design classics. It is an outstanding, timeless article of daily use which should not be missing in any tasteful office.Also in our blog:
