Culinary enjoyment, fabric care and air purification in the future home environments have been the themes around which the Electrolux Design Lab focused on. The global student design competition, that this year received over 1,700 submissions, has now its top six finalists, who will present their concepts to a jury in Paris on November 12, 2014.
Six talented design students from around the world will impress the jury with their innovations; a cleaning towel hanger by Leobardo Armenta from Mexico, an air purifier resembling a lotus flower by Fulden Dehneli from Turkey, a cone shaped flying air cleaner by Michał Pośpiech from Poland, smart kitchenware recreating tastes by Sorina Răsteanu from Romania, a nature inspired virtual grocery shopping experience by Pan Wang from China / UK and a fashion appliance turning plastic bottles into clothes by Kovács Apor from Hungary.
“For this year’s global design competition – explains  Lars Erikson, head of Electrolux Design and the Design Lab jury – we asked students to submit concepts based on our theme ‘Creating Healthy Homes’. In the end, we selected six finalists out of 1,700 entries. The finalists’ concepts are truly innovative and offer new ideas on how we might be living our lives in the future, whether it’s eating healthier or being more sustainable.”
