Flo is a container for the dirty clothes. When it is empty it is kept opened, and as it is filled it’s closed progressively because of the weight, when it is filled completely it remains totally closed. The object is thought for the use of two or three people. Its capacity is about 5 kg of clothes, which it seems to be the most common volume of a conventional washing machine. Its functioning simultaneously is a visual indicator of when it’s necessary to do a wash.
The functioning of the container is based on two structural parts that cover the interior, and two other flexible parts that allow the opening and the closing of the object, caused by an interior fabric in suspension.
