The 2014 Electrolux Design Lab competition has entered its next stage by choosing the top 35 finalists.

The theme in 2014 is Creating Healthy Homes. Entries present design solutions for healthy home environments of the future, in three focus areas: Air Purification, Culinary Enjoyment, and Fabric Care.

“This year’s Electrolux Design Lab semi-finalists have created visionary concepts that are prime examples of what you might see in the home of the future,” says Lars Erikson, Head of Electrolux Group Design and head of the competition jury. “They focus on connectivity, biomimicry, robotics, wearable tech, recycling and reusing materials, all promoting healthy, sustainable lifestyles at home – virtually in some cases. Overall, the concepts make our busy everyday lives more efficient and our choices more sustainable for a greener planet.”

Electrolux received more than 1,700 entries this year, from design students all over the world. In May the company chose the top 100 to present online. The number has now been narrowed down to 35 semi-finalists. A public online vote will determine which of the 35 wins the People’s Choice Award.

The People’s Choice Award winner will receives a prize of EUR 1,000.

Six finalists, selected in October, will travel to an awards event in November, where a winner will be chosen.

The winner receives EUR 5,000 and a six-month paid internship at an Electrolux global design centre; second prize is EUR 3,000 Euros and third prize is EUR 2,000.
