OBLIQUE / Laundry Basin

OBLIQUE
OBLIQUE

OBLIQUE is a humane appliance to improve the living habits of the elderly. It can make clothes washing become more effortless. The elderly are accustomed to sitting on the bench to washing clothing in a traditional washboard. In consideration of functional deterioration of the elderly, the tilting design is applied to reduce the magnitude of stoop. Two-stage bevel design at the bottom makes water pouring becomes effortless. The human design of "OBLIQUE" is put into consideration for the elderly's living patterns. For the sake of humanity, it is hoped that the elderly may enjoy most comfortable and healthy lives.
