The ‘Parasite Farm’ by Charlotte Dieckmann and Nils Ferber is an indoor compost system that can be easily integrated into your current living environment. Highly compacted urban area doesn’t leave much room for agricultural practices and not everybody has access to a balcony or garden. The ‘Parasite Farm’, a system that enables you to compost your biological waste, produce humus soil and to grow your own vegetables and herbs – all within your apartment!
To integrate with your interior and your habits both the vermicompost system and the plant boxes use existing furniture as infrastructure. The parasitic objects are fed by your food scraps and provide you – in turn – with fresh vegetables.
Chung-Tang Ho has presented Push and Store cabinet. This piece of furniture may accommodate anything that is not higher or wider than itself. This cabinet expands as it’s filled up. There no shelves, you just push the object inside and the cabinet expands to store it. The design could be used as a miniature bookcase or a CD case, it is all up to you and your storing needs. Once the objects are pulled back, the cabinet takes its “normal” shape, making room for other items. With this cabinet you won’t have empty shelves, if you don’t need to store something you can just enjoy the view.
