Fashion designer Paul Smith has brought to the the Design Museum’s new exhibition Super Contemporary a new rubbish bin, designed for London, in the shape of a giant five foot rabbit with flashing ears.

The new green rabbit bins will be trialled in Holland Park and Covent Garden for four months.  The bin rabbit’s ears light up when rubbish is placed in the bins.

The Design Museum’s exhibition, which runs from 3 June – 4 October 2009‘is the spirit of London design, past, present and future.

The Design Museum has joined forces with Beefeater 24 to showcase 15 new commissions from London’s most dynamic creative’s, and as a group they demonstrate the diverse approaches to design in London’.
