Sharing is Käring

Sharing Cleaning Appliances

The ‘SHARECONOMY‘ trend with its focus on shared resources rather than private property has spread to all areas of life. People tend to replace private property with shared resources. With this smart sharing system, Kärcher can find its way into every urban household. A smartphone app provides advice on cleaning matters, shows where the nearest Kärcher equipment is located, and allows the user to book the required devices. The public sharing station provides the Kärcher equipment.

JURY STATEMENT

The cultural shift described has not yet been made into the area of appliances. It is important for designers to challenge normative ideas of ownership and distribution and this project is a good example of that.

WINNER STATEMENT

We were very happy to hear that our project won an iF STUDENT DESIGN AWARD! It's very motivating to get this acknowledgement and to see that other people also think our idea of the "Sharing is Käring" concept is valuable.
