Cordless Cleaner C030 Cordless Vacuum Cleaner by Sosuke Nakabo

Home > Winners > #104671


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Cordless Cleaner C030

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Cordless Vacuum Cleaner

INSPIRATION:
Brooms which are simple, light and easy to handle for cleaning up rooms. Simple and robust like a business-use product, but it blends in with home. Intuitive interface, no excess functions.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
This cleaner was carefully designed by reframing it as being a tool that lends color to our daily lives, rather than as a household appliance that is described merely in terms of specifications, as is usually the case. The aim was for a product that, while simple and sturdy like commercial equipment, blended in with the household in which it was used. Its modest, unobtrusive nature assumes that it will be placed in some kind of living space. Since it is extremely light (1.25kg) and has good central balance, it is easy to handle and the user does not tire when using it.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
One-button-operation. Operation is simple and easy with a button on the grip. Each time the button is pushed, it turns power on with low, medium and high powers. It is turned off by holding down the button. Very light, well balanced and easy to handle. Sophisticated functions such as mechanisms for a dust cup release, and a brush height switch. You can use it with or without T-nozzle and extension pipe, and it can get a variety of forms. It can be stored on the stable stand made of steel.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in December 2017 and finished in December 2018 in Tokyo and Kyoto.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Home Appliances Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
It employs a very small, high performance DC motor that was developed in conjunction with Nidec, which it delivers in a compact package. The simple yet sturdy construction does not just rely on plastic; aluminum is employed for the handle and steel for the stand, and it is easy to dismantle.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Handy unit: H404.0×W98.0×D135.0mm/ 0.85kg, With extension: H963.0×W220.0×D135.0mm/ 1.25kg

TAGS:
Cordless, Vacuum Cleaner, Light, Simple, Functional, Powerful

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Got thousand of reviews for the previous model from online shops and SNSs. Got advised by professional cleaning person. Used design research method such as 'Observation�39; and 'Heuristic evaluation'.

CHALLENGE:
There are so many functional parts in the product, and it was very hard to have it work perfectly and give it balance. Usually electric appliance industry are good at dealing with plastics such as ABS and PP, but not very good at that of other materials and combinations. Most of company use plastics for making a vacuum cleaner including a stand, for example, but we tried to design the stand made of steel, and the handle made of CNC cut aluminum, to apply the right materials to the right places.

CLIENT/STUDIO/BRAND DETAILS
NAME:
Plus Minus Zero CO.,LTD.

PROFILE:
WHAT IS ±0? The ±0 brand is something of a symbol that expresses the idea of being “just right”. People naturally try identifying tools that fit in with their lifestyle based on their daily experiences. This is also a search one makes themselves for their own preferences. It’s a bit like gradually narrowing down the scope of the waver of your preferences, restoring them to the left when they waver to the right, and then returning them back to the right when you return them too far to the left. The sense of something being “just right” lies where your preference is decided. A shape that is “just right” They create shapes that are loosely aligned with the trends or lifestyles of the time that do not get too swept away by fashion, shapes that can be used for a long time. A size that is “just right” Their products are a little on the small side. They aspire to the comfort that comes from returning to the right size following a greedy desire for size. A price that is “just right” They aim for affordable prices that allow you to purchase products when you desire them. As the name suggests, they want ±0 products to be firmly at the center of the waver in people’s preferences. They want them to be the golden mean, in the middle of peoples competing appetites. CORPORATE PHILOSOPHY By delivering products that blend in with the lives and living spaces of customers throughout the world, ±0 continues to provide a sort of unity to life. To that end, ±0 seeks out the inevitable form that an object should essentially take; without being swayed by the manufacturer’s theories regarding common sense and efficiency and not leaving any of the functions necessary to that object out, ±0 promises to carefully deliver each and every product with suitable quality and at a fair price. Through such corporate activities, ±0 seeks to contribute to the advancement of the world’s design culture.
