A huge handheld vacuum cleaner was the eye-catching centrepiece of the Miele Stand at IFA International and attracted a great deal of attention from trade fair guests. The giant model celebrated Miele’s unveiling of its first battery- powered handheld vacuum cleaner, with its 3-in-1 concept, and emphasis on ease of use and exibilityy around every room in the house. Other highlights included washing machines and dryers, which feature faster programmes that are more environmentally friendly and offer intelligent networking.
