Carousel / counter-top dishwasher


As urbanization grows, apartment nomads must adapt to smaller spaces that lack conveniences – often a dishwasher. Carousel, a counter-top dishwasher, has a unique teardrop shape, addressing the appliance needs of users: space, sanitation, and storage. The rounded front allows for a roll in door so consumed counter space stays the same whether the door is open or closed. The form enables dishes to be loaded on a rotating rack, eliminating the need to reach past dirty dishes; available space is always at the front. Finally, a curved front allows for the hose to snap around the base when not in use - preventing leakage and space consumption.
