Composter Doubles As Garden Chair

January 31, 2011 by

If you don’t mind that with this combination garden chair and composter you are sitting on a pile of possibly odorous fermenting waste, then you might like the idea that the decomposing material underneath could keep the seat warm while microscopic organisms are transforming your organic wastes into rich organic fertilizer and soil amendment.

Habitare Art Design’s concept is certainly thought-provoking. Although I tend to like double duty furniture, I’m intrigued by the design but it doesn’t look particularly comfortable. What do you think?

    Where your legs overhang will really hurt. Unless you are built like gumby. : (

    Sitting on worms seems counterintuitive.

    Hmmm…I like the idea, but I agree it doesn’t look comfortable. Also, for urban spaces, it looks like it might take up a fair amount of room. Although, vines could be trained along the top. I’d also worry that we might produce more compost than the chair could handle.

    NOTE: I have been informed by the designers that the composter can not be used as a chair as it is too tall. Sorry for the misinterpretation!
