Electrolux Design Lab 2009 Finalists
From teleport fridges to flying water catchers to robotic greenhouses on Mars, Electrolux announces this year’s top eight Design Lab finalists in its global competition themed “Designs for the next 90 years”.
The eight finalists will compete for first place in Electrolux Design Lab ’09 finals in London on September 24, 2009, at 100% Design London, the UK’s leading architecture and design event.
A jury of internationally-recognized designers will judge the entries and select a winner. The jury includes Nipa Doshi, furniture designer and co-founder of Doshi Levien design studio, David Fisher, Design Director of internationally renowned product design consultancy Seymourpowell, Marisol Manso Cortina, Manager of the Color Design Group at Nissan Design Europe, and Henrik Otto, Senior Vice President of Global Design at Electrolux.
For Design Lab’s seventh edition, Electrolux invited undergraduate and graduate industrial design students to send in their home appliance ideas for the next 90 years, in honor of the Electrolux 90-year anniversary. The brief was to create thoughtfully-designed products that will shape how people prepare and store food, wash clothes, and do dishes over the next nine decades. This year over 900 entries were submitted from students in more 50 countries.
