Orre- modular composter

It is estimated that in an average household, material suitable for composting accounts for over 40% of all waste. Keeping compost is one of the pillars of ecological life. It allows you to produce less waste and produce valuable fertilizer for organic plants. The project was created for everyday use in small habitations and it aims to change habits and popularize composting. Thanks to the modularity, it takes up little space and allows you to process a large amount of waste. A Built-in fan, which pushes the air inside, guarantees good oxygenation of the compost, and the carbon filter protects against an odour. In addition, the design is distinguished by an elegant form.



The inspiration was the Zero Waste philosophy. Zero waste is a lifestyle, according to which a person tries to generate as little waste as possible, thus not polluting the environment. It is estimated that in a household the material is suitable for composting constitutes more than 40% of all waste. Keeping compost one of the pillars of ecological life. It will develop less waste and produce valuable fertilizer for organic plants. In the world, 1.3 billion tons of food is landed on landfills every year – that’s 1/3 of the total production.
The design process began with a few weeks of gathering information, interviewing, familiarization with professional literature and experiments with composting methods.


The entire design process was very time-consuming and demanding.
I’ve done dozens of sketches and a few quick prototypes. I modeled the final form in the SolidWorks program. I made the visualization in the Keyshot program. I wanted to show the details of the design and the nature of the materials used.


When I presented the project for the first time, it was received very positively. I heard a lot of nice words and praise. That is why I decided to submit this project to the international competition A’ Design Award & Competition. The jury also appreciated the project. The project won the Bronze A ‘Design Award.

I want to create projects that have a real impact on improving the quality of life of the recipient. I want to create products not only aesthetic, but also solving everyday problems of each of us and the environment in which we live.
The production of compost is a simple way to manage garden and kitchen waste as well as the production of ecological fertilizer. It is estimated that in an average household, material suitable for composting accounts for over 40% of all waste. Keeping compost is one of the pillars of ecological life. It allows you to produce less waste and produce valuable fertilizer for organic plants
Composting of bio-waste has not only environmental benefits but also economic benefits.
The advantages of composting include: reduction of the total amount of waste sent to landfill, neutralization of waste in terms of sanitary-epidemiological, production of compost necessary to ensure the fertility of soils, low investment and operating costs, easy storage of unused compost, a significant reduction in the production of rubbish in the household.

Project was awarded in A’ Design Award & Competition.
