japan GOOD DESIGN award: focusing on interior design harmony, panasonic elevates the laundry experience with a front loading washing machine (NA-VG1000) that is minimal, slim and orderly. the cube form was carefully designed so that it can effective and comfortably wash a wide range of dirty clothing. the drum adopted a square door that offers a large work space to ease loading and unloading. the inlet is 138% larger than traditional washing machines, making it possible to extract more clothing and with its clear glass window, provides a reassurance of glancing inside to see the state of the washing process.

every little detail has been thoroughly reviewed by panasonic engineers and designers. the frameless structure around the door is purposefully devised to keep dirt from accumulating. making full use of large-scale acrylic molding technology, the washing machine is completed hard coated in the synthetic resin to keep from getting scratched. the touch screen panel above the door only fades on when used, to keep with the minimal aesthetic. during operation the controls deliver an intuitive and comfortable experience filled with bright white LED buttons.
