Electrolux Design Lab


Electrolux has announced the eight winners of the 2010 Electrolux Design Lab competition aimed at design students. The 2010 completion called for entries to explore creative solutions to compact living in 2050, when an expected 74% of the global population is predicted to live in an urban environment.

Four of the finalists, including the winner, The Snail – a portable heating and cooking device by Indian designer Peter Alwin – will be displayed at the Grand Designs Live consumer exhibition in London, which runs from April 30 to May 8 2011.
