Vote for your favorite design lab finalist
Monday 13 September 2010
The winners of the Electrolux Design Lab competition will be decided by judges on September 23 but members of the public are also being given a chance to vote for their favorite project.
The Electrolux Design Lab competition was open to undergraduate and graduate industrial design students from around the world. The brief centered on predictions that by 2050 74 percent of the world's population would live in urban spaces, entrants were therefore asked to design a household product of the future which would reduce domestic energy consumption and provide a solution to living in increasingly small spaces.
On September 10 the most popular design as voted by the public was the Bio Robot Fridge by Yuriy Dmitriev from Russia. The fridge stores food in a biopolymer gel and cools its contents through luminescence. In close second place was the wall-mounted clothes washer the Dismount Washer which was designed by Lichen Guo from China.
Voting is open to members of the public up until September 22. At http://www.electroluxdesignlab.com/2010/08/vote-for-your-favourite-electrolux-design-lab-2010-concept/
Winners of the annual Incheon International Design Awards held in Korea will be announced later in September; entrants were tasked with designing an environmentally friendly product which would enhance the way people live.
