    Pepelkus 2.0 outdoor cigarette receptacle

    Overview   Packaging   Process   Hi Res  

    Task: to produce an improved version of a cheap and convenient outdoor cigarette receptacle.

    Pepelkus outdoor cigarette receptacle can be mounted on any street pole, won’t be mistaken for a regular garbage container and empties easily. The second version of Pepelkus boasts an improved grill: the holes are now circle which makes cigarette butts drop down easier and prevents them from accumulating on top.

    The form clearly communicates the function

    Pepelkus is designed to be made of sheet metal and doesn’t call for a particular thickness—leaving a manufacturer some freedom—as long as the construction is strong enough to withstand the elements. The assembly method is also not mandatory: choose spot-welding or rivets. Pepelkus mounts to poles with standard screw clamps.

    Pepelkus 2.0 has an improved layout: the back side became more technologically advanced and practical to manufacture.

    The size matters

    The receptacle is mostly enclosed to ensure any still-lit cigarette butts stop burning out of oxygen deprivation.

    Smoking is bad, but being neat is nice and easy

    At the bottom of Pepelkus is a magnetic trap door that can be easily opened to empty the container’s contents into a trash bag or bucket.
