Aisle

DESCRIPTION

Professional cleaning is a world-wide profession that is carried out by millions of people every day. They play an important role for our health and perceived well-being by having clean environments to live in. However, it is a physically demanding job where musculoskeletal disorders and cardiorespiratory problems are common due to working with repetitive and continuous awkward postures. ‘Aisle’ was designed in participation with the airplane cleaners at Copenhagen Airport to eliminate ergonomically improper postures while vacuum cleaning airplanes. With simple solutions it allows a more efficient and natural way of vacuuming airplanes without disturbing other cleaning tasks. Its form and features are developed for an airplane environment but can be used for other situations where professional cleaners face similar problems.
