Abstract [en]

Almost every person on earth is wearing clothes, which means everyone once in a while have to do their laundry. To wash by hand is hard labor and very time consuming. When the washing machine first came people, especially women, got more time over for taking care of their children, time for education and the possibility to get a job.

 

But the washing machine that is used today needs stable electricity, running water and some sort of heater for the water. This type of working infrastructure is not certain for a large part of the world’s population, even if many people have the economic means to get a washing machine. There is today no suitable alternative between the washtub and the complicated, expensive and resource demanding washing machines that is produced today.

 

The goal of this project has been to develop a new type of product which solves the problem with the bad compatibility with today's machines, which needs running water and stable electricity. After extensive database scrutiny and several interviews with knowledgeable people has a distinct demand been specified.

 

The project has resulted in a new type of innovative washing machine which from now on is called Tvättbjörn. Tvättbjörn aims shuts the big product gap that is between the washtub and today's complicated washing machines. The project group's vision is to contribute to a new view of how energy is produced and how it is used in a sustainable way. The project group wants to show an alternative to how laundry machines can be designed.
