As we move to an urbanised future, ownership will become less and less common and our needs will be increasingly fulfilled through services. At the same time, in densely populated cities it's hard to create a sense of community.
So... how might we create a service for laundry that also provides social value and community?
Miele Community Wash is laundry-as-a-service meets community-building social enterprise.
Washing, drying, ironing, and clothes storage is all provided by casual workers in the community and social interaction is encouraged between service users and service providers as a key feature of the service.
