DROOGSPIN

WHAT
A space-saving new take on a familiar household object.

WHY
Student digs are often small and provide only a minimum of necessities. They are hardly the ideal place to dry laundry, and keeping them tidy is a challenge.

WHY
The best place to dry laundry is high up in the room, because hot air rises, Jelle Heuver reasoned. He knew that historically, farmhouses in the Dutch province of Groningen featured a droogspin (literally: drying spider) to hoist up drying clothes. He reintroduces the idea, extending the item’s functionality: dry your washing, or lift up your things if you need the floor space. In this capacity the ‘Droogspin’ is also a valuable addition to small offices or studios.

Make the best possible use of your small living or work space!
