Washing laundry is simple enough in confined spaces, but setting it out to dry is takes time and surface area. The more people in a given dwelling, the more you are apt to see racks simply sit out all week as clothes cycle through.

Kim Bobin & Ko Kyungeun have come up with a Red Dot Design Award winning solution to this problem – window blinds that fold out into a drying rack, conveniently located near the best source of natural wind and light to speed things along.

The best part is also its curse, however – so long as you have laundry lying out, you cannot block the sun from the window. Still, it is a great concept whether or not it ends up seeing the light of day.
