Zoowerk / Vacuum cleaner-family


Vacuum cleaner for the young and those who feel themselves young. I aimed to give up the boring car design-like vacuum cleaner design and create a brand new line. Memories and fairy tales from the childhood worked as inspiration. I wanted to change cleaning into a play so that it’ll be more enjoyable. I’ve designed two devices: a traditional vacuum cleaner (elephant) and a robot (frog). I tried to give every funny element a function, which is combined with perfect ergonomic. The concept fits to the Vorwerk’s direct sale system, since who could reject an elephant stomping at the door!
