Describe the brief from the client
Siemens washing machines with anti-vibration technology are extremely smooth and don’t vibrate even at fast spin-drying. These features should be announced to our high-earning and design-addicted target group.

Describe the challenges and key objectives
The challenge was to create an amazing and striking proof of the anti-vibration technology.

Describe how you arrived at the final design
In Berlin – the city of art galleries – Siemens opened a very special exhibition: The Laundry Gallery. An artist used ordinary household items to create fragile balance sculptures and placed them on top of Siemens washing machines. At the vernissage, the spin cycle with up to 1,600 rotations per minute was turned on – and the sculptures remained intact thanks to the anti-vibration technology.
The posters announced the exhibition and show the real sculptures on top of the running washing machines. They were placed in the whole city centre of Berlin and in the showrooms of the Siemens stores and other retailers.

Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market
During the exhibition’s 2-week run, more than 10,000 people visited the Laundry Gallery and saw for themselves how smoothly Siemens washing machines operate.
