Our stainless steel lids keep it quiet so there’s no banging or loud noise with specially designed dampers that allow the lid to open easily but provide enough resistance so it silently eases down gently. The simplehuman classic rectangular step can has an internal hinge and a space-efficient shape so you can place it directly against the wall and out of the way. The strong steel pedal is designed to last, and our patented lid shox technology ensures a smooth, silent close every time. We design tools that help people become more efficient at home. Day to day life has room for improvement. That's the basic thinking behind simplehuman. Many activities in our daily routine are so basic that we take them for granted. Washing our hands, cleaning up after a meal, grooming and prepping our appearance. Through innovation and new technologies, we find ways to streamline these simple tasks. We call our products tools for efficient living.
