IONDevelopment of an ironing system

Very few people iron out of sheer boredom. However, clothing has a very great significance for us: it is an expression of our identity. It provides information about our activities and even influences how we behave, think, and feel. Proper care of a garment can significantly extend its life. The new concept was developed for this purpose. The system consists of an ironing board and a steamer.
The steamer is a sustainable and efficient alternative to both ironing and washing. Due to its ergonomic shape, it fits the handshape perfectly.The accompanying ironing board has a suspension. That means that it does not have to stand, but is stored hanging on the door. A large handle on the back makes it easy to adjust the ironing board to the desired position. This creates a contemporary product that flexibly and elegantly integrates smoothing into everyday life as a natural part of clothing care.
