This twin tub washing machine is specially designed to reflect local usage patterns that are monitored thoroughly. The "EZ Wash Tray" allows the user to pre-wash the laundry, while shape of the upper part prevents dirty water from flowing down. These factors are a part of a distinctive design that interprets the washing machine as a worktable for the clothes washing process. The beaded form increases the washing machine’s strength. The corners of the PP material in the main body have been rounded to prevent deformation. This is an eco-friendly design that is a testament to cost innovation.

This culturally-specific washing machine designed for the customs in Southwest-Asia is surprising at first: its sleek appearance and logistical minimalism create a truly captivating design language. However, it is not just a washing machine: this product also serves as a washstand for pre-cleaning the laundry. Practicality and elegance.
