DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Tulpi-Arabesque

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Waste bin

INSPIRATION:
Tulpi-Arabesque creates an atmosphere of "thousand-and-one night" that will support people to enjoy throwing away their waste.The Tulpi-Arabesque is constructed from a solid round steel post with a welded container tray. A separate inside waste liner provides a large capacity for waste. The whole is enclosed by 2 curved composite petals. Tulpi-Arabesque is designed to withstand the stringent requirements for public furniture.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Litter is an eyesore. It is therefore important that people are encouraged to dispose their waste in the appropriate bins. These bins should be visible and recognizable. They must also be part of the environment. Traveling through the Middle East, I had the idea to design a special bin for this area with its beautiful and intriguing colors, architecture, mosaics and graphic patterns. As a result the Tulpi-Arabesque.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The Tulpi-Arabesque can be equipped with different kind of colorate innertray's. To empty the bin, unlock the two petals at the right side for easy access to the removable inner tray. Also an optional full electronic opening and closure system is available.

TAGS:
Tulpi, waste bin, street furniture, Dutch Design, Tulip, garbage, litter

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
We did exploratory and testing research. We visited and looked at the current streetscape in multiple cities of United Arabic Emirates. Internet: if the design already existed. We participated in a Dutch government seminar about litter to obtain observations and comments of experts, and reach a wider audience. Several prototypes were shown at various fairs and events. Vandal proof and safety tests were also performed.

CHALLENGE:
The biggest challenge was to keep the shape of a tulip and built in all features. Also to use a good and working fold-system, to let the petals close properly.

CLIENT/STUDIO/BRAND DETAILS
NAME:
Tulpi B.V.

PROFILE:
Tulpi-design is based in Nieuwegein, The Netherlands, founded in April 2011 and owned by designer Marco Manders. Marco Manders started his business in graphic design more then thirty years ago. He gradually gained interest in product design. He entered his idea for the Tulpi-seat during a Dutch government pitch, an event where professionals were invited to enter their new design ideas for public space design. By that time Manders had fallen in love with design for public spaces. The Tulpi-seat and Tulpi-bin are designed to create more fun and color in our outdoor environments. The organic design is an ode to the tulip. Tulpi’s are high quality products: not only the exterior was a major focus point during the product development, he has also put a lot of work into the functional features.Tulpi’s are highly innovative: the folding element of the chair guarantees a dry and clean seat and the movable petals of the Tulpi-bin are protecting the inner waste-bin. Tulpi’s are typical Dutch Design, which we can characterise as: minimalistic, experimental, innovative, quirky and humorous.
