AEG appliances and Design Lab concepts filmed for new Channel 4 series, Home of the Future
AEG Neue Kollektion oven, hobs and hoods as well as Electrolux Design Lab concepts have been filmed for brand new Channel 4 series, Home of the Future, which starts February 12th, 7.00pm on Channel 4
What happens if you ask a normal family to boldly go where no-one has gone before – to live in the future? This five-part Channel 4 series, co-funded by one of the UK’s leading energy companies E.ON, and produced by Twofour, transforms the lives of a family, filling their home from top-to-bottom with futuristic technology and gadgets. As well as having cutting-edge technology and gadgets to play with, the Pereras family in Sheffield will be challenged by scenarios likely to come in the next twenty to fifty years.
A range of cutting-edge AEG appliances were filmed for the show including the MaxiSight TFT induction hob, ProCombi steam oven, CuliSense oven, CrystalLine Induction wok and Teppanyaki grill, Downdraught cooker hood and the AEG induction wok accessory.
Electrolux Design Lab concepts have also been filmed for the Home of the Future to give viewers an insight into what the future of appliances might hold.
Overseen by expert Chris Sanderson, the Pereras will discover how we may work, rest and play – as well as eat, travel, stay healthy and power our homes. The series looks at the effects of working from home and living in multi-generational households and asks: what will we eat when cheap food is gone and mass-produced meat is unsustainable? And the family face being shamed by their bin if they don’t recycle enough and being temporarily banned from short car journeys (electric and hydrogen-powered, naturally). The first episode of Home of the Future airs on February 12th, 7.00pm on Channel 4.
