VIKA 

Air purifier for the home office

“VIKA is the air purifier/work-station support unit for the home. Expandable, compactable and available in different sizes, VIKA demarks space, whilst Electrolux air purifying technology helps people get the most from their home environment. Practical solutions include a foldable pinboard that can accommodate notes, prevents distractions and prying eyes. When work time is complete, VIKA can be folded up to symbolically signify the next chapter of the day. “ -Electrolux

"Home is where I can rest , meet up with my friends and spend time with my little guy"

VIKA

Air purifier for the home office

VIKA is the air purifier for the home office of the conscious explorer post covid-19. The concept is based upon modern air purifying technology used by Electrolux to better the quality of air in the home. Combined with practical solutions to improve the home office environment. 

In Asko Ease the layout of the machine has been inverted. Starting with the display on the left and having the dose compartment to the far right. This is because the amount of detergent depends on the weight and soiling, therefore the user will type that in before dosing the detergent. 

 

Since Asko claim to be an environmentally friendly company we think that the design should reflect that. That’s why we have removed the ability to use prewash and softener.
