Design Competition – Household Appliances

Deadline: 01/05/2010
Open to: global undergraduate and graduate industrial design students

Electrolux Design Lab 2010 invites global undergraduate and graduate industrial design students to create home appliances that consider shrinking domestic spaces. Your ideas will shape how people prepare and store food, wash clothes, and do dishes in the homes of 2050 when 74%* of the world’s population are predicted to live in an urban environment.  Growing populations living in concentrated areas dictate a need for greater space efficiency. This year, special consideration will be given to designers that submit a design within the context of a range or suite of solutions/appliances. Your design ideas should address key consumer requirements; being green, adaptive to time and space, and allowing for individualization.

For registration fill in the form. The competition is an individual competition, meaning that group entries will not be accepted. Applicants are asked to submit only one solution.

The contents of the submission
One document with images and explanation in English of your concept including a brief description of the consumer insight (solution to consumer needs) that supports your work; pdf format only, max 2MB.

1st prize: €5,000 + 6 months’ paid internship at an Electrolux global design center.
2nd prize: €3,000
3rd prize: €2,000
