GE Pure was a year-long production development I headed up as lead designer on during my internship with GE Appliances in Louisvile, KY.  It still remains one of my favorite designs.  The product centers around delivering all of the critical elements to the user:  the controls angle at 45 degrees, and the door handles lift up from center to allow one the ability to open the door without bending down.   This design language, created in 2002, still carries a clean and current expression - long after the competitive products of the time (Whirlpool Duet and Kenmore Elite) have been showing their age.
