From the very beginning, simplehuman has focused on providing products with superior design. In fact, the company was founded in 2000 when Frank Yang came up with an idea for making a better trash can. After showing his design and receiving his first orders at the International Home and Housewares Show, he was off and running. A year later, the company broadened its product line, expanding its focus to include kitchen and bath tools under the tagline "Tools for Efficient Living." Today, simplehuman focuses on five main product lines including Trash Cans and Liners, Sensor Pumps and Soaps, Dish racks and other kitchen tools, Shower Caddies and other bath tools and Sensor Mirrors. And thanks to simplehuman's dedication to superbly designed products, they have won numerous prestigious awards and captured The Container Store's customers' hearts. The Container Store has long recognized simplehuman's unique product benefits and has carried their products especially the award-winning trash cans, since they first appeared in the market. And over the years, The Container Store and simplehuman have experienced steady growth through their mutually beneficial relationship.
