Chilean artist Mauricio Clavero has worked with Copenhagen’s Vipp on a line of trash bins styles with more than 90 national flags made out of more than 70,000 Swarovski crystals just in time for the London Olympics. They are part of “The Louvre Collection” of 36 unique works of art, made from Vipp bins and soap dispensers with Swarovski crystals (previously installed at the Musée du Louvre).
Nine other city items depicting the metro rail systems of Tokyo, Paris, London, Copenhagen, Moscow, New York, Shanghai, Sao Paulo and Dehli are also included in the collection. More from Vipp. The 2012 London Olympics begin soon.
