Abstract (Swedish)
The vacuum cleaner industry has until recently been exempt of energy labeling in the EU which, unlike refridgerators, cookers and washing machines, has enabled it to turn to power as a main sales argument towards consumers. Both in energy usage and from a styling perspective, power has been and still is a strongly enforced value - making it one of the few domestic appliances that often looks like it could make it to the moon and back.

As vacuum cleaners will likely undergo a similar shift in the mind of consumers as other appliances have - from power and capacity oriented values towards efficiency and practicality as major decision making factors, there are several interesting aspects that could be investigated and challenged such as...

The vacuum cleaner industry has until recently been exempt of energy labeling in the EU which, unlike refridgerators, cookers and washing machines, has enabled it to turn to power as a main sales argument towards consumers. Both in energy usage and from a styling perspective, power has been and still is a strongly enforced value - making it one of the few domestic appliances that often looks like it could make it to the moon and back.

As vacuum cleaners will likely undergo a similar shift in the mind of consumers as other appliances have - from power and capacity oriented values towards efficiency and practicality as major decision making factors, there are several interesting aspects that could be investigated and challenged such as form, format, consumer behavior and cleaning routines.

By gaining insights from several different perspectives relating to dust removal technology and how we use them, the project aims to define a new approach to form and technology for dust removal in the home.

One of the main goals of the project was to design a vacuum cleaner concept that aims to rethink the way we use and interact with one of the most abused products in our home. (Less)
