Hydro Washer / Washing Machine

Hydro Washer
Hydro Washer

This public washing machine is driven by water, which can supply a natural, zero carbon emission and economic washing method to the residents who live nearby water but without stable electricity power.

Before modern washing machine was invented, people did laundry in the river, where they could communicate with each other, like a social platform. That's why we designed this hydrodynamic washing machine as a public facility, to recover the social platform. Through washing clothes, people start to meet with each other again.
