Outline

We gave deep thought to what innovation can be made in using washing machines, reminding ourselves that 'small changes transform our lives'. We maximized the unique benefits of touch controls, which were overlooked with LCD controls. By providing intuitive and easy interactions and interfaces to both users of analog washing machines and users who are accustomed to digital technology, we enabled all types of users to easily engage in the washing process.

Evaluation

Valued for its functional design from the standpoint of a housewife as the main user. All necessary parts have been minimized, and the ordered, simple design is beautiful. Also, excellent how the product shape is linked with the interface.
