Brabantia Launches Exclusive Capsule Collection With Orla Kiely

Interior design brand Brabantia, famous for bringing style and function to kitchen and homeware, has collaborated with the ‘Queen of prints’ - Irish designer Orla Kiely.

Known for her retro-inspired lifestyle collection - which includes everything from ready-to-wear clothes to furniture - Kiely has teamed up with Brabantia to design a print for its Retro Bin.

Her world-famous stem design has now taken root on Brabantia’s equally iconic Retro Bin. The sprig and leaf motif is available in cream on charcoal with an orange lid, and charcoal on cream with a yellow lid. 


Orla said: “Brabantia are a company that I have admired for many years. Their products are of a high quality and very functional. I was thrilled to have the opportunity to collaborate with them. We have added some fun to an object that we all use every day. I would be very happy to have one of the bins in my kitchen at home.”

Mechteld Petersen, Value Director: “Orla Kiely’s prints are influenced by the 1960s and ’70s, just like our Retro Bin. Being both contemporary and retro, we feel this bin and Orla’s design to be a perfect match.”

The Retro Bin is more than just a pretty thing – it’s smart inside and out too! Open the lid with a light pedal tap and watch it close smooth and silently. It’s quiet, easy and extra hygienic to use, as you don’t need to touch the lid to open the bin.  Brabantia Retro Bins come with a 10-year guarantee.

The Charcoal Linear and Cream Linear Stem designs are available in 12, 20 and 30 litre Retro Bins, from April 2015 from John Lewis.
