Summers Be Damned

Summers Be Damned

The ‘Aircon+E’ is akin to a fan that uses thermo-element technology, so when it works with electricity, it cools like an air-conditioner. The fan can be charged and used on its integrated battery, hence portable. Basically the personal fan has graduated to a personal air-conditioner on the go!

Freeze As You Please

Freeze As You Please

The FR is a flexible refrigerator that can allot storage space as per the food requirements. What this means is that in case you have more frozen foods than fresh, then simply switch the compartment dividers to increase the freezer space and vice versa. It basically gives you the flexibility to change the freezer to fresh-food configuration. Pretty clever if you ask me!

Dot Matrix Microwave for Dummies

Dot Matrix Microwave for Dummies

I know I’m not the only one who has NO CLUE how to use my microwave’s gazillion features. For us, there’s the Dot Matrix Microwave. — This innovative design takes the guesswork out of heating various foods by utilizing a single knob that toggles between the only the most common settings including defrost, liquids and 3 straightforward power settings. The design could have used a 2 million pixel LCD fancy shmancy screen, but nothing really emphasizes its simplicity like a beautifully basic dot matrix display!

Surphase is the ultimate in portable cooking! The multipurpose cooking appliance can be used to heat and cook or even to cool food.

Washing with Air

Washing with Air

Air Wash is a revolutionary way to clean garments using NO water and NO detergent! The eco-friendly design captures, compresses and converts CO2 into its liquid form which has the unique natural ability to penetrate and remove stains and dirt. Not only saving energy and freshwater during the wash cycle, there’s also no need to tumble dry! Once the wash cycle is over, the door automatically opens and the CO2 liquid instantly evaporates, leaving clothes fresh and dry.

The Pure Towel is a smart appliance for the bathroom; it instantly disinfects and dries your wet towel, using ultra violet rays and a high-speed dryer fan. Using this appliance kills almost 99.9% of the bacteria in a towel, making it safe for use without additional washing.

The Flow of Fresh Flowers

The Flow of Fresh Flowers

Air fresheners and purification devices need not be ugly blobs that we are embarrassed to showcase. They can be as sleek as the Lotus Flow, which is the combination of an air purifier and lights. The petals of the surreal flower are made from electroluminescent fabric with a hydrophobic coating that helps draw in dust and pollutants into the core section. This is where the air purification happens. Overall a brilliant design, I’d love to see how far we could take this 2014 Electrolux Design Lab entry.
