How might we design a product that prevents dirt entering home?
We spend several hours a week cleaning our apartments. Where does our dirt come from and how can we avoid creating dirt?
the average cleaning time of germans is 4.7 hours a week
After two weeks, more than 420,000 bacteria cavort on our shoes
90% of the dirt comes from outside
“I sometimes forget to take my shoes off. Especially in
hectic moments or when I am
just too exhausted!”
“I want my home to be clean!”
Where does the dirt come from?
The distribution of dirt in the living area can be avoided by a „lock“. An easy way is simply taking off the shoes on the doorstep or the use of a doormat.This can reduce the subsequent cleaning effort. Carpets can fulfill this task.
The concept is inspired by the brand Vorwerk. Vorwerk produces high-quality household products and flooring. I combined both worlds into one product concept
