zera food recycler

CES 2017 Best of Innovation winner, Zera is a breakthrough rapid composting appliance that turns today's food waste into tomorrow's fertilizer. This product has been years in the making as a collaboration between Proctor & Gamble and Whirlpool, beginning in 2011. In 2014, I was a member of the conceptual design team during my internship at Eleven. At this stage, the first functional prototype had been made, validating the mechanical design of the auger and heated chamber. We were tasked with bringing this new-to-the-world idea to life through sketches, CAD, and foam prototypes, focusing primarily on bringing a familiar user experience to this unique kitchen appliance.
