Our Story

Mehrdad Mahdjoubi, an Industrial Designer was involved in a Mars Mission project between NASA’s Johnson Space Center and Lund University, which lead to the inspiration behind ORBITAL’s innovative recirculating shower and its patented water purifying technology.

Mehrdad was tasked with finding the necessary water budget to sustain life in space, knowing that the current way we consume water here on Earth would be unfeasible in space. By recycling the water used by astronauts, the water footprint decreased radically.
A life in space that once seemed impossible, was now practical.
Mehrdad’s vision quickly turned back to Earth, where commercializing his water saving technology would have a far greater impact.

With a global move towards saving the world’s natural resources, ORBITAL SYSTEMS is an idea whose time has come.

Conventional Showers Waste Water

Only 1 percent of the Earth’s water is freshwater available for our use.
Yet, when we use water - we waste water.

In a regular shower, water hits our skin for a second and disappears down the drain again. The average 10 minute shower can mean a monumental loss of a 100 liters or 26 gallons of water down the drain, plus the energy that it takes to heat it.

ORBITAL SYSTEMS technology purifies and recirculates water in a closed-loop. Turning a few liters/gallons into all the water that’s needed -reducing the amount of water and energy used by up to 90% and 80%, respectively.

This water saving technology is currently available in our latest product, the Oas shower system.

Smarter With Water

ORBITAL SYSTEMS vision is to change the way we all think about and use water, without requiring changes to personal habits and behaviours—making us all smarter with one of the planet’s most precious resources.

Our mission is to create a new paradigm of daily water use- making living with 20 liters or 5 gallons of water a day, the new norm. We started with the shower, as its the biggest water waster. The next step is to apply this water-saving recirculation technology, to the tap, toilet and appliances like the laundry machine in order to enable a complete eco-bathroom solution.
