Samsung's AirDresser is part dresser, part appliance. It packs a cleaning system that sanitizes, deodorizes, steams, and dries your delicate garments. Simply hang your clothes on the AirHangers, set it to your preferred mode, and press start. The AirDresser does the rest.
From the outside, it looks like a standard dresser, complete with full-length mirror. With a clean and sleek design, it's easy to incorporate into any room regardless of its decor. Samsung only offers it in one color, Crystal Mirror, but it comes in two different sizes: one that holds three hangers at a time and one that holds five.
The only detail that gives away the fact that it's actually a smart closet is the touch-screen control pad in the middle of the mirror. Navigating the menu is easy. There's a display with arrows on both sides, which you can use to cycle through and specify what it is you're cleaning.
The dresser offers options like Outdoor, School Uniform, Suits, Winter Coat, and Wool/Knit. It also tells you how long each session takes. Below that, you can choose your care mode, such as normal or delicate. Once everything is set, simply press play and the dresser will start to clean.
The inside looks a little more high-tech. My immediate thought when I first opened it was that it looks like a refrigerator, with insulated walls and compartments. There are also two small drawers on the bottom. When you're ready to use the AirDresser, fill the Refill Drawer on the bottom with water. When filled to the maximum level, the AirDresser can get through 20 cycles, Samsung says.
When it's done cleaning, simply remove the Drain Water drawer next to it and empty it out. Above it is a removable shelf on which you can put additional clothing. When it's not in use, clip it to the inside of the door. The AirDresser also includes a side attachment for accessories like scarves and ties.
On top are the AirHangers for your clothes. Each one clips into its own respective section, which keeps the clothes from touching. It's also home to the JetAir System, which dusts your clothes on the inside and outside. Afterward, the JetStream sanitizes the clothing to get rid of bacteria. The Heatpump then dries the clothes, but it's kept at a low temperature for both safety purposes and to prevent shrinkage.
Towards the back of the dresser is the deodorizing filter. At the end of each session, it captures and removes odors from getting trapped inside. A dust filter and lint filter also prevent particles from sticking to the walls.
The Samsung AirDresser will come out in Korea this September, priced starting at 1,550.
