Zero / Washing Machine


In 2014, approximately 41.8 million tons of e-waste was generated worldwide. The quantity included 6.3 million tons of screens and monitors. As we are living through a digital revolution, smart home appliances are getting more popular and widely recognized. We, designers, should rethink the role of screens, and create responsible products.

Zero is a smart washing machine without an integrated screen. It can be controlled with any predefined smartphone with a wireless connection - whether it is on the product or not. Zero is a screenless washing machine which redefines the role of the screen on smart products and reduces electronic waste.
