Airwash

Bronze
2006

Airwash changes the way people do their laundry. It is a waterless washing unit that uses negative ions, compressed air and anti-bacterial deodorants to clean clothes. Dry clean-only clothes can be airwashed conveniently and quickly at home without exposure to chemicals, and favorite outfits can be cleaned frequently without fear of color fading. Its gently curing form is inspired by the waterfall, nature’s negative-ion generator, and its tall, flat profile complements its side-loading mechanism. Operated by a buttonless, embedded LED interface, the controls appear anywhere the user touches.
