At first glance you might find yourself wondering whether this eye-catching piece is a plant or a decorative means of displaying an aquarium. Or maybe it’s a combination of both? If you’ve thought through any of these options, then you’ll be quite surprised to learn that this trendy modern piece is actually a hi-tech composter called the Eva Compost Homefarm designed by Francois Hurtaud. That’s right, farming takes on an entirely new look with the use of this beguiling tool!
Not only does the composter fit in beautifully to an interior design scheme, but it also provides a green method for recycling wasted organic matter in your home. Part of the discard is used for cultivating the green patch that it houses and the rest is used to produce methane.
The modern composter essentially maintains its own biosphere while providing a proper method for waste disposal. It’s amazing what applying green design methods can do to improve homes both visually and for the environment.
