Near future cloth-cleaning system
IO is a human-centered design project investigating cloth-cleaning systems of near future. Following the planning phase of the workflow. We have conducted an online survey,interviews, disposable camera and a journal containing simple questions to further understand daily activities and problems. Through the outputs, we decided to focus on young singles who are hesitating to clean small amounts of clothes every day, thinking about the consumption, leaves them with big batches and causes them problem at the end.
To overcome this problem, we have proposed usage of new cleaning technology, Xeros Polymer Bead Cleaning which uses less water and can also be effective in lower temperatures. Within its small drum of 3 kg, it can clean dirty clothes at the end of every day regardless of its color and textile. During cleaning process, circulation of the water is used to indicate the cleaning phase
