/ 5 January 2024

Airports are high-traffic areas where thousands of travelers pass through each day. The cleanliness and aesthetics of these spaces play a crucial role in the passenger experience. To meet these requirements, Aéroports de Paris (ADP) has recently introduced new trash bins made in France, combining elegant aviation-inspired design and functionality. In this article, let’s delve into the world of urban design furniture and explore how these new trash bins are redefining standards in airports.

Urban design furniture : where aesthetics meets fonctionnality

Urban design furniture is more than just a convenience. It contributes to the visual identity of public spaces, adding an artistic touch while addressing the practical needs of users.

Airports are unique environments where functional design takes on a new dimension. The new trash bins from Paris airport ADP align with this vision. Conceived by the JUMMO design studio, the WOP bins combine clean lines, durable materials, and elegant colors to create a welcoming and modern environment.

Promoting recycling and environmental action: transforming trash bins into educational and sustainable tools

The new trash bins at ADP Paris airports, far more than a mere aesthetic element, play a crucial role in promoting waste sorting and recycling.

Equipped with clear and intuitive pictograms, these bins guide passengers in the proper separation of waste. The specific colored sections for paper, plastic, and non-recyclable waste subtly encourage travelers to participate in environmental efforts. By transforming them into interactive educational tools, these bins raise awareness among passengers about the benefits of recycling and their power to make a positive impact on the planet. They seamlessly integrate into an overall approach of innovation and sustainability. These bins feature intuitive waste sorting systems that promote recycling and use durable materials to extend their lifespan, reducing the need for frequent replacements


100 % French Manufacturing: an added value

One of the most notable features of WOP trash bins is their entirely French manufacturing. By choosing local partners like TF URBAN, which has been producing in the Loire region for over 100 years, ADP Paris airports emphasizes its commitment to the excellence of French craftsmanship. This approach not only strengthens the identity of the airports but also contributes to reducing the carbon footprint associated with international freight transport


Enhanced passenger experience

The airport environment directly influences the passenger experience. The new trash bins contribute to creating a more pleasant space by preventing waste overflow and promoting a clean and organized environment. Passengers are more likely to feel comfortable and relaxed, enhancing their overall perception of the airport.

Trash bins are no longer just functional elements but also pieces of urban design and instruments for creating pleasant spaces. With their entirely French manufacturing, innovative design, and commitment to sustainability, the new trash bins installed in ADP airports illustrate how urban design furniture can transform public spaces into welcoming, modern, and environmentally friendly places.
