We’ve all found ourselves tossing wadded-up paper into the garbage to show off our hoop skills. Why not make it official with this basketball-inspired wastebasket? It features a woven metal net that sits on a wooden base and a small backboard for bank shots and for keeping missed shots from landing on the floor behind it.
Do you have heaps of brush or other debris you need to burn? Skip the burn barrels and uncontained piles. Made from thick 14 gauge steel, Pyro Cages keep fires controlled, and help feed them with airflow thanks to their perforated sides. They come in a variety of sizes, along with optional lids and risers available.
Waste processing plants are usually some of the ugliest facilities out there. But in Copenhagen, Denmark, the modernist Amager Bakke not only cleanly converts trash to energy, its rooftop doubles as grass-covered urban ski slope. The impressive facility was designed by Bjarke Ingels Group.
