Collapsible clothesline

This product was developed as a redesign for a course aimed at constructions at ‘Saxion University of Applied Science’. The product with the most possible improvements was chosen to redesign. The original design was a simple dry rack. With a team of designers different concepts were made to try to increase the usage of the product. The team developed a new design where clothes were easily to put up. The user of the product is able to stand still while putting clothes up owing to the axle rotation of the product. To make the storage of the product more convenient, the clothesline can be collapsed. Research on this new product by independent respondents showed that in this way the user is able to hang up clothes twice as quick.
