Marti / Sustainable washing machine

Marti
Marti

Marti is a concept for a sustainable washing unit that grows with the user. With durability and longevity at it’s core, it is designed to be modular, disassemble- able and easy to repair. A ubiquitous household appliance, the washing machine currently sees a fall in its usage life to a mere seven years due to reasons of mechanical obsolescence and barriers in repair. My goal through this project is to create long lasting product and service experiences through easier channels of repair and to design deeper partnerships between humans and the appliances that surround. Can the key to a sustainable future be appliances that last for generations?
