An innovative container is placed on walls, turning a commonly hidden household object into something more decorative.

Polyp is a pop-off laundry basket designed by German designer Helene Steiner that hangs on room walls.  She designed this it to be aesthetically pleasing so that it becomes socially acceptable to have it within eyesight, instead of conventional laundry baskets that are often hidden inside closets or shoved in corners. Users can insert dirty clothing into the holes, then simply detach and carry away when laundry needs to be done. It is also modular so that it can be arranged in different ways and accommodate usage from more people.  The storage of dirty underwear and socks can now be done in a pretty way.
