Composting in New York City can be challenging to say the least. Not only are you dealing with the constant changing of the seasons, but space in this densely packed town is also sparse. However, with every challenge is also an opportunity, and much like many of the other problems associated with these limitations we look to design to keep us moving in the right direction. On the composting front Polish designer Ala Sieradzka‘s as made for us Bono, a compact countertop composter spun from powder-coated aluminum that comes with an equally stylish cork lid and base.
The beautifully spun unit is a product of careful craftsmanship, and you can see the designer’s process here.
The lid of the unit is perforated with tiny holes to allow for the appropriate amount of ventilation to expedite the decomposition process. It also provides air for the worms to thrive if you decide to go with that option.
Drainage holes are located at the bottom of the Bono. The excess water will drain through the holes onto a metal plate located in a hidden drown embedded in the cork base.
To get started with your home composting project one must first line the bottom of the Bono with newspaper followed by a sprinkle of soil and another layer of newspaper scraps. Now your unit is ready and the appropriate food scraps can be discarded into the unit as needed.
The Bono is not yet available for purchase but we’re hoping to see it on the market as soon as possible.
