Marlous van den Engel

Department: Man and Activity


Drying laundry without the energy-gobbling dryer machine requires time and space. Where to hang everything? And where to stash that ugly rack when the laundry is dry? The Launtree solves many of these problems. A weatherproof tree that can stand in the garden, it supports large leaves from which to hang the laundry. The loops of steel springs offer enough attachment points to hang two full loads of laundry. When the laundry is dry it can be taken down and the Launtree remains behind as an attractive object in the garden. Moreover, drape the purpose-designed cloth over it to create a parasol.
