Since 2003, appliance manufacturer Electrolux has challenged design students globally to create concepts that are relevant to the present while raising questions about what design will be like in the future through the Electrolux Design Lab.
This year, inspired by the theme of “Creating Healthy Homes,” the Electrolux Design Lab encouraged students to create inspiring ideas for healthy lifestyles that are both sustainable and enjoyable. Their innovations range from a PV-powered air purification device that flies in the air on wings, smart kitchenware that recreates the taste and smell of food, and a towel rack that instantly cleans and sanitizes bathroom towels.
Six finalists were chosen from more than 1,700 submissions across the globe whose designs offer solutions to creating healthy homes and fit within the categories of: Culinary Enjoyment, Fabric Care, and Air Purification. The winner will be chosen at the final event held in Paris in November. Click here to see all six finalists' designs and watch videos of their creations.
