iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_02 2021

Most people prefer to dry their clothes outdoors, if possible so that they later have that fresh smell of wind and sunlight, but if you don't take them in quickly when it rains, you have to wash them again, which is very troublesome. The concept behind this design is to have an outdoor clothes drying rack that automatically takes the clothes in when it rains.

Awesome! This is a great idea and it solves a very common problem. It would also encourage people to start drying clothes more frequently in the sun without worrying about rain. This would contribute to saving energy.
