On the 17th of May 2018 the glass bin celebrated her 40st anniversary. As part of the anniversary edition of the Glas in 't Bakkie campaign, Studio Lernert & Sander designed, in collaboration with creative agency Arttenders and Nedvang, five recognizable glass bins cakes. In a large national campaign, the 'Glasbak' gets what it deserves: a Dutch iconic status!
In honor of the birthday of the Glasbak, Dutch musicians De Jeugd van Tegenwoordig launched the single Glasbak with the accompanying video by Lernert & Sander. In addition, various municipalities within The Netherlands celebrated the birthday with golden Glasbakken.
