Airblade Body / dyson body dryer

Airblade Body
Airblade Body

Why still use towels in the 21st century? Ever since people are using fabric to dry themselves after taking a shower. But this method comes along with many disadvantages.

We questioned this usual technique and developed an innovative solution using Dyson‘s visual brand language as well as its corperate values. Our idea is it to use a strong warm air stream to wipe off water from the body. An ergonomic blade-like shape and a strong electric motor are main components of the developement.

The final product is a mobile bathroom gadget which enhances drying your body. It is a fast and hygienic way which could be the future of the classic towel.
