The 12th Electrolux Design Lab competition will address the issues of health and sustainability under the theme of Creating Healthy Homes.
Electrolux Design Lab 2014 calls on design students worldwide to compete for a six-month paid internship and a prize of EUR 5,000 by submitting innovative design ideas for future home environments.
The theme of Creating Healthy Homes asks how people of the future will be able to enjoy healthy well-being, live in pleasant environments, and take care of themselves and others in a way that is "creative, sustainable, and effortless."
"Homes become more important as the challenges in the urban environment grow, and as a result we want our homes to be the center of relaxation and peace of mind," said Stefano Marzano, the Chief Design Officer of Electrolux. "Design Lab is one way for Electrolux to build an innovation culture."
The competition seeks ideas for products, accessories, consumables, and services in three focus areas:
* Culinary Enjoyment
* Fabric Care
* Air Purification
Participants should submit a description of an idea, a visual sketch illustrating the idea, and a description of the consumer benefits. The competition opens for entries March 1, 2014, and the submission deadline for the competition is April 6, 2014.
