BrushUp / Brushes to Wash Up Dishes


The project BrushUp arose in cooperation with the company GARDENA, goal was to change their product division into the kitchen sector.
BrushUp is a concept for households with no dishwasher, it‘s a solution, which helps to wash dishes manually. You pull out the grip, and choose one of the 3 brushes, which are connected by the Original Gardena System. You can turn the water feed on/off at the grip, which prevents the user from wasting water. There are 3 options: Either the water is turned off, it is dripping through the brushes to keep the dishes wet or you can rinse off the dishes with a stronger jet of water at the very front of the brush.
