The Capitole, a completely normal waste bin, is the best-known work by designer Bas Pruyser (1950). Everyone knows this waste bin, but only a small audience knows the fascinating history of origin.
The reason for this book is the 40th anniversary of De Capitole in public space.
Pruyser takes the reader into an accessible life story about education, design, collecting waste, collaborating with people and making decisions.
“I would like to tell a wide audience about my beautiful profession, the creativity that connects people. Influences that play a role in decisions, explain why things are the way they are. I would love to read such a book when I just started. “
