CAN CAN / Washing machine


CAN CAN, is a washing machine with drawers dividing washing partitions in three unlike ordinary washing machines. You do not have to wait until the washings in the same color are fairly collected with newly designed CAN CAN. It uses the space more efficiently as a washing partition of existing washing machine is separated to wash the clothes all at one time, so it allows economic washing by saving not only the amount of water but also the electricity consumed.
Because of the separated washing tub, it is named CAN CAN. ‘Can’ means a tub but its pronunciation is more similar to ‘kan’ in Korean. ‘Kan’ means a separated space in Korea.
