Compost bin design

Developed for the Maribynong city council (Melbourne Australia) to be given away to every household of this suburb. This product was designed to store organic waste in the kitchen and then emptied into a larger bin sitting outside the house. The lid has 2 opening stages with a stopper to avoid this part closing when the product was being emptied.

The design makes use of organic shapes and a bold simple character that blends in with any kitchen decor. The bin can also be hidden under the sink by hanging it from the pantry’s door using the 2 slots at the back of the bin.
