Gabriel Tan and Wendy Chau, who are both Industrial Design Students at the National University of Singapore, won the Design Lab Award at Electrolux Design Lab 2005 with this “waterfall-inspired” washing machine. This washing machine does not need detergent instead it uses negative ions, compressed air, and deodorants to clean clothes. Which would make this more of a dry cleaning machine rather than washing. One question though, where do the clothes go?
“By using atmospheric air and negative ions â€“ a natural cleansing agent â€“ it fights dirt and bacteria with natureâ€™s own weapon. Airwash is also designed to be placed anywhere in the home, instead of the designated laundry area.â€
