Electrolux Design Lab 2010 The 2nd Space Age

The 2nd Space Age presents 25 semi-finalists from around the world. Designers from 17 countries selected the best 25 of 1,300 present concepts, which is up 30% on 2009 participation. The emphasis has been on creative solutions for compact living. The Electrolux Design Lab 2010 brief asked industrial design students to consider how people will prepare and store food, wash clothes, and do dishes in the homes of 2050, when some 74% of the global population are predicted to live in an urban environment. So forward looking appliances like the Robotic Fish Dishwasher, the Snail Induction Cooker and Sheep Vacuum Cleaner among others should not surprise you. The winner will receive a 6-month paid internship at one of Electrolux global design center and also € 5,000. The second prize is worth € 3,000, the third is € 2,000. I think I put most of them, for the rest and details, check Electrolux Design Lab.
