In 2015 – its 13th year – the theme of the competition is “Healthy Happy Kids” and the competition looks for innovative ideas for products, accessories, consumables and services in three focus areas: Cooking, Fabric Care and Air Purification.

Thomas Johansson, Design Director and one of the Electrolux experts comments:

“The semi-finalist concepts of Design Lab 2015 are original, innovative and thought provoking. The students have now received expert feedback and a new brief to further develop their ideas. As always it will be very exciting to follow this process online and engage in a conversation with the semi-finalists. In previous years we have seen good ideas turn in to great consumer propositions.”
