We designed the accessible washer and dryer line to contribute to sustainability. It can be used without difficulty regardless of user height thanks to its all-in-one control. It also ensures the convenience and comfort of those with visual impairment by including braille and tactile location markers in the control panel and a sound-driven UX. Moreover, it has a reduced environmental impact as it senses the laundry's dirt level, selects the appropriate cycle to minimize water use, and automatically dispenses the right amount of detergent.
