Aquarium: The iPhone of Washing Machines

Aquarium: The iPhone of Washing Machines

If there is one thing that hasn't changed since its inception, it's the concept behind a washing machine. The box-like devices haven't changed that much, and even you look for something different, you'll end up paying thousands of dollars for something like that. Think about it, weren't those LG washing machines and dryers the latest rage in washing machine technology? Designer Djordje Zivanovic comes to the rescue with an Aquarium, and it's not for fishes!

It's hard not to compare this design by Djordje Zivanovic to the iPhone. From a design point of view, it looks interesting. It's nice to see the whole box-like machine replaced by something spherical, but in the end, does it wash any better? Now that's the important question. Since this is only a concept, there isn't much information available on this. However, we've found a few interesting tidbits about the Aquarium.

One thing is for sure, it sure looks better. However, washing machines are usually kept far away from prying eyes, so making one look cool doesn't really make much sense. The designer says that its innovative since it's only composed of two spheres, one inside the other. The spheres rotate in different axes, so looking at it can be mesmerizing. It's mentioned that this washing machine is called Aquarium because it doesn't need a water tap, meaning that you have to refill it periodically and it can be placed in the middle of your living room, if you find the movements of the spheres really interesting.
