Division is a product family consisting of different garbage cans for household waste. The aim is to make our homes the optimal supplier for the public waste system and eliminate the annoying problems with household waste, such as moisture, odour and space.







„Division“ consists of a family of garbage cans that collects all the garbage in the household.

At the heart of the system is the washing machine sized separation unit. This unit takes care of the rather unpleasant household waste: recyclable materials, organic and residual waste.

Bio-waste is shredded, dried and collected in a biodegradable bag.

Residual waste and recyclable materials are separated from each other by a prior scan, reduced in a press and packed airtight in a sturdy plastic bag.






The previously mentioned problems can thus be solved. 
Domestic refuse can be separated and disposed of in a pleasant and efficient way.





Three light bars on the front of division provide interaction with the user. They are intended to provide an easy-to-understand overview of the condition of division.




Physical interaction takes place through intuitive control panels on the division. The simple functions can be controlled seemingness this way.






The project was developed as part of the Siemens Home Appliances Design Award together with Fabian Essigkrug, Gerogia Zinser, Benedikt Dietz, Markus Göckel und Johanna Sailer.

The concept was selected for the next stage of the competition, alongside two other ideas of the Munich University of Applied Sciences and was exhibited at „Haus der Kunst“ in Munich. A total of twelve projects from four European Design Schools were shown here, with „Division“ winning the audience award. This was rewarded with a six month mentoring program at Siemens.
