It has been a while since we have used a clothesline to dry our clothes. While hanging your clothes is the most energy efficient way to dry your clothes, it is neither fast nor particularly reliable if you live in a rainy climate and your clothesline is not covered. The Australian Design Award - Dyson Student Award
concept looks to change that.
Designed by student, Daniel Fitzgerald, the "air-line" concept was developed with apartment dwellers in mind. Solar energy and ambient air are combined to dry wet clothing. The best thing about this concept is that you can't actually see the clothes when they are put out to dry. Angled metal slats conceal the clothes from sight while still allowing air to circulate and a path for the sun to heat the clothes.
