Post Image

The ZitA Square trash can is a testament to Japanese design ingenuity, combining tradition with technology to address a common issue: unpleasant odors. Designed with a slatted exterior reminiscent of traditional Japanese plaster walls, the ZitA Square blends seamlessly into any environment. This attention to detail extends to its functionality, with an automated sensor-based shutter lid that opens and closes quickly, minimizing odor escape.

Multidisciplinary design studio ZitA has taken a holistic approach to odor control, incorporating an unscented deodorant strip and adjustable sensor detection range. The result is a trash can that not only contains odors effectively but also reduces them by up to 60%, according to the company’s calculations. Powered by AA batteries, the ZitA Square is designed to last up to 15 months, making it a durable and reliable solution for odor control in any space.

One of the standout features of the ZitA Square is its attention to detail and user experience. The LED lights embedded within the trash can subtly illuminate, indicating when it’s time to replace the odor eliminator. This thoughtful design ensures that users are always aware of the status of their trash can, reducing the risk of unpleasant surprises.


As with any automated device, durability is a concern. However, ZitA has conducted rigorous testing to ensure that the ZitA Square can withstand the rigors of daily use. With a 2-year warranty and a lifespan of approximately 8 years, the ZitA Square is a reliable investment for those looking for a long-term solution to odor control.

Overall, the ZitA Square trash can is a testament to the innovative spirit of Japanese design. By combining traditional elements with modern technology, ZitA has created a product that not only addresses a common issue but does so in a stylish and effective manner. Whether in a home, office, or public space, the ZitA Square is sure to make a lasting impression.
