PUSHE / Iron


The iron has a design with the hotplate, floating over 2cm from the floor. Thus, the iron works by pressing hotplate to the floor. If you saw off an iron for a moment, cloth would be damaged in an instant. Also, an iron is usually set on its end. However, it is really dangerous to let the hotplate of an iron be exposed in the air. Especially, if a baby or pet touched it, they could be scalded. PUSHE has a design, which can solve these problems. It satisfies both of safety and conveniences with the simple structure, making the hotplate touch the floor by pressing a handle and come off the floor by backing away from the handle.
