Mini Bin Bin by Essey

Essey

Essey is a Danish design brand. It was founded in 2003 around the concept of using symbolism or metaphors to promote a given function or the inner nature of an object or a product. The products concept is called Symbolic Functionalism. The company have won the Red Dot award, the IF-design award and the Good Design award.

Pen Pen by Essey

The most famous and successful product is Bin Bin – a paper bin made of high-density polyethylene – resembling crumpled paper. The product reflects the product philosophy in a nutshell. Another striking design is the side table Illusion. The Illusion table is a magical piece of furniture made of acrylic formed like a stiff tablecloth.

Illusion Clear by Essey

All illusion tables are hand-made in Germany and not a single one is identical to another – all are unique. Cantus, Wipy and Fly Fly etc. all follow the same story telling of functionalism reflected in product design and appearance. It is about giving objects a soul, an identity and letting them communicate this to us – an one author described it: “Shhh…Let the products speak”. Essey products are sold around the world through distributors and high street design retailers and online shops.
