Term project completed 2012 at Umeå Institute of Design in collaboration with Whirlpool.
Design. The Urban Composter is a home composting appliance for indoor use. It aims to minimise the negative impact of inevitable everyday food scraps while bringing awareness to the issue by visually indicating the amount of wasted food. By controlling the carbon-nitrogen ratio and providing adequate aeration and moisture, greenhouse gas emissions are minimized and the output can be used as fertilizer for your plants or in the landfill to speed up the breakdown of other waste.
