Outline

Our objective was to simplify, as much as possible, the complicated parts and usability of previous wet & dry products to deliver new value -"suction+water"- in addition to general dry cleaning functions. We made it so that one dustbin (3-in-1 Cyclone) can cover three cleaning situations (dry/wet/water filter) without separate dustbin replacement/assembly. Also, we applied a built-in, 3-in-1 brush so that the user can conveniently change the brush mode (carpet / hard floor / mop) by pushing the slide button on the brush neck area during wet cleaning.

Evaluation

The idea of the shape of the wheels is to be able to smoothly get over any obstacles. The fact that the design has been able to solve this problem is highly valued.
