Accelerated Laundromat

Laundromats are reinvented as appealing, multi-functional spaces

Implications - Taking cues from the retail industry, laundromats are being redesigned and re-positioned with hybridization in mind. Merging the concept of laundromats with retail spaces, cafes and beyond, savvy business owners are re-imagining the laundromat as a place where its customers actually want to spend time. This reinvention speaks to the way in which consumers are focused on maximizing their time whether through experiences that enhance their enjoyment or serve to solve a problem.
