Electrolux Exhibits Resourceful Concept Appliances

Electrolux challenged Masters design students at the Domus Academy in Milan to rethink kitchen appliances and will this week exhibit nine concepts based on existing technology that consider sustainability and culture under the ReSource theme.

The exhibit coincides with the 2011 Milan Design Week and comes just before entry to the annual Electrolux Design Lab contest closes on May 1, 2011.

"To re-source is to re-generate, re-energize, re-mix, and re-lax,” says Bruno Lizotte, Design Manager at Electrolux, “and the appropriate space for this multi-tasking is, more than ever before, the home and its vibrant centre – the kitchen.”

Lizotte, who tutored the students, said the concept appliances show "a dynamic way of looking at appliance design, offering novel solutions for the kitchen environment.”

The nine appliances on exhibit:
