ACUUM / Vacuum cleaner


ACUUM is a vacuum cleaner designed to be on display, not hidden. Keeping one’s home clean is a must for maintaining a healthy life. Upon interviewing 8 young professionals, I discovered that they tend to put off floor cleaning. They feel that if they start to clean the floors they will have to clean the entire house, averaging 45+ mins. ACUUM is a minimalist cordless vacuum that seeks to change all this. Its sculpture like style encourages user to keep it out of the closet and display it in their living spaces. This makes it always ready for a quick cleaning, and a visual nudge that encourages users to take small steps to a healthy lifestyle.
