Recens / Clothing refresher

Recens
Recens

Adapting to our strive for feeling fresh while making positive effects on modern washing habits.

Recens assists you to give your clothes a feeling of freshness. The product uses nothing but air, turned into ozone, to attack and kill the germs which constitutes the bad odor. Oxygen is turned into ozone through exposure of high voltage current. This process is more commonly seen in nature as lightnings in a thunderstorm.

The resulting blue light is integrated into the design as a visual feedback convincing the user of the product’s efficiency. The handle bar at the front accomodates for existing behaviors through a temporary clothing rack.
