Envi is a foresight urban dustbin, promoting composting from biodegradable waste. It makes waste into nutritious compost for the plant which it carries and lives in harmony with. The big part of the produced compost can be separated from Envi for usage in other occasions.

This project uses bio-reactive substances based on photo catalysis to accelerate the degradation process of waste, remove bad smells and polluting gas.

There’s usually a trashcan next the toilet, so Snowtone Design figured it might be nice to put that receptacle to use during the times you’re not throwing stuff in it. Just drag it around in front of you as you’re doing your business and all of a sudden you have a hands-free reading assistant.

Portable, auto-butt-cleaning toilet bowl from Toto. It has a folding top for comfortable sitting and controls on the side for a bidet, butt spray strong or soft, and most importantly, the OFF button. It’s made of wood so that your ammonia waste and sweat can stain it and all the waste falls neatly into the tray below, so that you can pull it out, throw shit out, and use again.
