Samsung Electronics announced that the AddWash washing machines won the Ergonomic Design Award at the Asian Conference on Ergonomics and Design (ACED) in Tokyo. Developed based on a in-depth consumer behavior analysis, the Samsung washing machines have gained rapid popularity. “This recognition reflects our effort to create consumer-focused and ergonomic products derived from countless hours of behavioral research and user analysis – said Hyunjoo Song, Vice President of the Digital Appliances Business at Samsung Electronics -. We will continue to make groundbreaking new technologies and innovations to better the lives of our consumers”. The ACED, established in 2014 and held every three years, is the international organization for ergonomics and design. For this year’s conference, the organization selected four winners in the sectors of software, automotive products, household furniture and home appliances. AddWash is equipped with a small window which can open when consumers have extra clothing, detergent or fabric softeners to add during the wash.
