“Xylophone Bin”, Musical Bin Concept

“Xylophone Bin” is an amazing creation by Dominic Wilcox designed for Danish Company Vipp’s charity auction event held in New York. It is not an ordinary bin but it plays music. Xylophone bin is made up of oak and steel. When you press the pedal, the lid opens and it releases a ball that travels down a spiral set of xylophone steps around the bin. Whenever that ball touches a step, a note is played and while going down, the note gets lower. It is hard to see such a musical concept and that too for a good cause.

Wilcox words :

When the pedal is pressed the lid opens, releasing a ball that travels down a spiral set of xylophone steps around the bin. each time the ball hits a step, a note is played. the xylophone steps are cut in increasing lengths so that the note gets lower as the ball travels to the bottom.
