Urbano Trash Can
This item appears here because I like the green and because it looks great when it's empty, without the plastic bags it's meant to house.
With the bags in play, it's all function and no form.
From the website:
Winner of the 2005 Pratt Product Design Competition, this clever trash can allows you to store and reuse the plastic bags that you collect from shopping in a neat, organized way.
Simply loop trash bags around the cut-out sides and push them all the way down, creating a visual of stacked handles all along the side.
When you are ready to use one, just move it up to the handles and hook so that it won't fall in on itself.
16"L x 8"W x 18"H.
Video demonstration here.
Green or Black.

I know it doesn't look all that great once the bags are in it, but as far as function goes, it's a winner. I've had the green one in my kitchen for over a year now and it's the best trash receptacle I've used.

If you had posted just the picture of the black one, I would've thought it was the top part of another bug close-up - one with hideous clamping jaws and terrifying extendable pincers. And actually, the more I look at it, the bags in the green one make it look even more membraney and Cronenbergy and generally horrifying.
