Electrolux Design Lab


This year the Electrolux Design Lab brief asked: “How will we prepare and store food, wash clothes, and do dishes in the homes of 2050, when 74% of the global population are predicted to live in an urban environment?”

Focusing on solutions for compact living situations, the eight finalists in the competition will present their concepts at 100% Design, London, in September. Ideas include the Clean Closet, where textiles are scanned for impurities and cleaned with waterless, molecular technology. The Eco Cleaner is a dual purpose portable dishwasher and composter that uses ultrasonic waves to ionise food and turn it into reusable waste.
