No one ever thinks of a washing machine as anything of aesthetic value, but the Flexible Distance is a new, award winning washing machine which oozes style. The machine is a top loader which features one-touch controls around the top ring of the machine and an LCD screen on top to monitor the progress of the wash load.

Ye Xiao Dong's design won the Lavatrice Cinese Made In Milan competition which regarded products solely for their style.

Implications - The idea is simple but beautiful. By redesigning a machine typically associated with the mundane tasks of everyday living, this turns washing machines into pieces of intense avant-garde art.
