Nipa Doshi of Doshi Levien jury member of Design Lab 2009

Electrolux has named Nipa Doshi to its Design Lab 2009 jury. The jury comprises four internationally-recognized designers who are all presented here at Electrolux Newsroom in individual postings.

Nipa Doshi is the Indian-born furniture designer and co-founder of Doshi Levien, a London based design office led by her and her husband Jonathan Levien. Nipa and Jonathan bring together two distinct and complementary approaches to their work. While Nipa’s work is strongly influenced by Indian visual and material culture, Jonathan’s approach is rooted in design for industrial production. Together, their work celebrates the cultural hybrid and explores the synthesis between technology, story telling, industrial design and craftsmanship. Doshi Levien was established in 2000 and their work includes installation design for the Wellcome Trust, interaction design for Intel, insight and design direction for Nokia, product design for Tefal, furniture design for Moroso and bespoke shoes for London based “aristo” bootmakers, John Lobb.

On September 24, 2009, the jury will choose the winner of the Electrolux Design Lab 2009 global competition at 100% Design London, the UK’s leading architecture and design event. This year’s Design Lab theme is “Designs for the next 90 years” in honor of the Electrolux 90-year anniversary.

Established in 2003, Electrolux Design Lab is an annual global design competition open to undergraduate and graduate industrial design students who are invited to present innovative ideas for household appliances of the future.

Over the years, Design Lab has received thousands of entries from students in more than 100 countries.
