SWIRL - EASY LAUNDRY
  • Swirl
    Easy laundry on the go
  • Swirl is a human focused design that simplifies washing in developing countries. Allowing easy transportation from and to distant water supply areas, the spherical design makes it possible to play with the product while the embossed swirl pattern improves de washing rubbing action inside the sphere.
    Swirl not only makes clothes washing easier as it makes it fun and an enjoyable moment for everyone!

    Project developed while at designaffairs GmbH - Munich - Germany
  • Swirl is a concept with a simple interface. With a few steps, washing becomes easier and faster. The overall design resembles a ball containing a swirled sphere shaped basket and lid, connected to a steel tube handle. Washing is accomplished through the rotation of the washing ball - using long distance travelling to and from water supply to wash the clothes. The user can also wash by just rolling it back and forth in slow rotation cycles.

    At home, after the basket is filled with clothes, the lid should be screwed and the handle locked in. Transportation can easily be done by pulling or pushing the handle. At the water source, the basket should be filled with water and the product is ready to wash.
  • ... now laundry can be fun!

    By just detaching the handle, Swirl´s spherical design allows washing to be a playful moment for everyone
