TROJAN VACUUM is our initial project that combines the functionality of an industrial vacuum cleaner with the aesthetic and beneficial qualities of minimalistic furniture design. The application of biodegradable materials such as
cork offers integration into the circular material flow, reducing its footprint lastingly. We were also focused on a repairable design and the reduction of plastics to a minimum. Together with the aesthetic and the transformative qualities this creates a long-lasting and sustainable product that considers the fact that the average usage of a vacuum is only 16 minutes per
week. With the Start-up EOTH (Eyes On The Horizon) we will bring back the “home” into home appliances.
Through manufacturing small home appliances like the TROJAN VACUUM, which are easily repairable, we want to offer a sustainable choice to consumers.
