In the YouTube video below, Electrolux present the eight design concepts that made it through to the 2011 final of the Electrolux Design Lab challenge. The ‘Intelligent Mobility’ brief specifically challenged global industrial design students to provide solutions that address how people prepare food, clean and do dishes both within and beyond the home. Take a look at these amazing concepts:

The eight deisgners will present their individual concept to an expert jury of designers in London, 7th September 2011. One winner will be awarded a six-month paid internship and 5,000 Euros.

“The Eight finalists have shown insight and innovation to make it this far in the 2011 Electrolux Design Lab challenge” say’s Henrik Otto, SVP of Global Design at Electrolux. ”In what was a particularly challenging brief, the top eight are to be congratulated for their lateral thinking and creativity but they will now need to demonstrate why their concept should be crowned absolute winner.”
