Stay on top of your laundry with the Alternative Clothes Cleaner from New Delhi designer Harsha Vardhan. His conceptual washing machine uses ionized air to clean clothes in what doubles as comfortable lounge chair suitable for any room.

Either the ACC’s passive or active mode – the passive cleaning mode takes longer – is whisper-quiet, making the need to shut the door to block out laundry noise a thing of the past. And, as the ionization process doesn’t use water, clothes come out ready to wear.
