October 14, 2013

This year the Electrolux Design Lab 2013 challenged students to create solutions for social cooking, effortless cleaning and natural air in future home environments. With more than 1,700 submissions received, the winner will be chosen from the top eight finalists after presenting their concepts to a jury in Stockholm, Sweden, on October 16, 2013.

The finalist concepts chosen are varied in their approach and include a 3D food printer by Luiza Silva from Brazil, a cleaner with flying nano-robots by Adrian Perez Zapata from Colombia, a food nutrition scale and map by Janne Palovuori from Finland, a shape-transforming vacuum cleaner by Germain Verbrackel from France, a breathing wall air cleaner by Jeabyun Yeon from Korea, an air-purifying and scenting necklace by Wei Kiat Law from Singapore, a food stock and diet manager by Francisco Barboza Grasa from Spain (pictured) and a hologram cooking appliance by Dawid Dawod from Sweden.

"The theme of this year's Electrolux Design Lab competition is ‘Inspired Urban Living,' as we discuss visions and inspiration which delight us and lift up our everyday lives in the future home environment,” said Stefano Marzano, chief design officer and head of the jury. “Out of 1,700 submissions, we chose eight thought-provoking and creative finalist concepts, which represent a broad selection of inspirational concepts for cooking, cleaning and air cleaning, in a way which offers solutions based on true needs, yet surprise us with their propositions of the way our future lives are experienced.”

The first-prize winner will receive 5,000 Euros and a six-month paid internship at an Electrolux global design centre; second prize is 3,000 Euros; and the third prize is 2,000 Euros. The student whose concept receives the most public votes online will be named the winner of the People’s Choice Award and will receive a prize of 1,000 Euros.
