Balcony compost

Paris – 2009

In progress

Design – prototype

Inspired by the story of Robinson Crusoe « A beautiful and good garden »

In partnership with Jardiland

Robinson is a lonely person feeding on natural products of his island. He is permanently recycling foods that he is stocking to nourish his plants: this is Robinson´s garden. The purpose of the balcony compost module is to reduce household waste and to obtain soil and fertilizer to be used for the next season´s balcony plants. The compost bin is made of a modular system with an aluminium drawers structure to be hung on the railing, as well as three wooden tanks: one for organic waste, one for the soil and one with a tap to be used for the fertilizer.
