For the fourth consecutive year, Electrolux is encouraging students around the world to fire up their creative minds and design household appliances for the future.
In the 2006 edition of the design competition, Electrolux Design Lab, students will develop solutions for food preservation and preparation that promote "healthy eating habits" in 2016.
The competition is open to all design students worldwide via the Internet, www.electrolux.com/designlab. Last year's Electrolux Design Lab competition attracted more than 3,000 students from 88 countries.
An international jury will judge the entries based on their design, innovation, consumer insight, and ability promote healthy eating habits.
The nine best entries will be invited to Barcelona, Spain, for a final event in late November 2006, where the winner of Electrolux Design Lab 2006 will be announced.
The 2005 Award went to Airwash, a waterless washing unit that uses negative ions, compressed air and deodorants to clean clothes, and features an intuitive, ecological design.
