Resource consumption in household activities partially represents the consumption pattern in a society. It encompasses the usage of water, electric energy, oil, gas and others, where the amount of the consumed resource also shows the impact to the environment. Meanwhile, most of the household activities involves appliances such as washing machine, air conditioner, and cooking appliances, sustainable design is considered as one of the solutions to the mentioned environmental problems. The notion is supported by previous studies which show that applying modification strategies on the product design and its installment may reduce the consumption of the resource. However, the effect may differ depends on the local characteristics of a society. Based on this concept, this research investigates the effect of the implementation of certain design strategies on home laundry activities in Indonesia, by conducting an experiment with participants doing their laundry in a studio. The consumption of water and electric energy is measured while the behavior is observed through video recordings and interview session. By analyzing the results, several options for improving the level of sustainability through sustainable design will be discovered. The findings shall be beneficial for the industries to innovate future sustainable products to be marketed in Indonesia.
