Tired of your washer and dryer taking up unnecessary space in your crib? India-based designer Harsha Vardhan has come up with a smart washing machine concept that eliminates the need for the traditional washer-dryer combo by integrating an ionic pressure washing system into a pebble-looking lounge chair. Instead of using water, Vardhan’s Alternative Clothes Cleaner blasts laundry with ionized air, so it emerges clean and dry. Whether the Alternative Clothes Cleaner is at work or at rest, this futuristic washing machine serves as a lounge seat. And according to the designer, purchasers would have the option to select from a variety of colors and custom finishes.
While the Alternative Clothes Cleaner remains a concept, we can see similar space-saving washer-dryer units making it into more than just the laundry room. Peep the large image gallery after the jump for a more in-depth look at the Alternative Clothes Cleaner and its functionality.
