Miele Attender / Attender vacuum cleaner

Miele Attender
Miele Attender

Attender is a student concept design for a 2-in-1 vacuum cleaner solution. It combines the functionalities of both a mains operated vacuum cleaner and a handheld vacuum cleaner. Using an adapter, it connects the handheld, battery powered vacuum to the existing model „S5“ from German manufacturer Miele. It features a very clean solution for emptying the handheld vacuum by redirecting the air-flow of the large vacuum cleaner. Swiveling of the adapter allows for easy storage and use of both devices.
A replaceable dust-collector-cassette as well as a detachable handle with integrated battery loader are also part of the Attender concept.
