Asian design concepts that redefine home living


The votes have been cast, and 35 concepts from some the best young designers around the world have made it to stage 3 of the Electrolux Design Lab (EDL) 2014 competition.

 The annual competition, which features “Creating Healthy Homes” as this year’s theme, drew close to 1,700 entries from 43 countries. The theme, which emphasizes sustainability and health in home living, has three focus areas for participants; Culinary Enjoyment, Fabric Care and Air Purifying. 

The Asia-Pacific region is well-represented this year, with nine concepts making it through for consideration at the finals. Only six finalists will be chosen by a panel of Electrolux design experts, who will then go on to present their concepts in Paris at this year’s Final Event in November.

Here are some of the innovative concepts from Asia Pacific:



Designed by Yu Yi, a student at Jiang Nan University, China, the Cooreater marries music and cooking, making the chore much more enjoyable. This device creates music by scanning ingredients and detecting how long and at what temperature the dish is cooked. Chefs can then post pictures of the dishes and share the resulting piece of music with their friends.


Vibrate Jelly 

Washing clothes without water is now a possibility with the Vibrate Jelly. Designed by Jee Na Jun from the International Design School For Advanced Studies, Hongik University in Seoul, the Vibrate Jelly uses vibration to separate dirt from clothes. The dirt then is attracted and attached to the jelly. Not only does this device save water, the use of vibrations and an eco-friendly jelly ensures longevity for your clothes too.


Air Globe

Designed by Pei-Chih Deng from the National Taipei University Of Technology, Taiwan, the Air Globe is an appliance that can simulate the air from different parts of the earth. So you can create warm air to simulate tropical climates on cold days, or cool mountain air on hot days. The Air Globe was the winner of the People’s Choice award during Stage 2.
