What Laundry Day Looks Like in 2050

What Laundry Day Looks Like in 2050

The Orbit washes clothes without soap or water, blasting sublimated dry ice at high pressure into dirty clothes, removing dirt, grease and other particles from the clothing. Liquid nitrogen superconductor levitates the drum in the center of the base without friction, eliminating noise and making the machine self-sufficient. It may be far out, but it’s waaaaaaay cool!

Non-aromatic Cooking?

Non-aromatic Cooking?

I like the idea that Hong Ying Guo is exploring with the Purifi Pan. The concept is simple; eliminating annoying cooking fumes right at the source and converting it to a refreshing gust of air. The approach is to add an electronic purifying element straight on the pan’s rim and doing away with conventional hoods. Hopefully its detachable, to enable easy cleaning and as we can see it is suitable for different sized utensils, with a couple of tweaks and refinements, I think we’ll have a winner in our hands.

Cook, Chop, Clean and Serve from a Table

Cook, Chop, Clean and Serve from a Table

The kitchen in the future, say 2025, is not going to be more than a table! This is what most designers and even Electrolux predicts. Future Cook is an interactive unit that doubles up as a prep area, induction cook top with integrated food processor and a washing area. Using existing technologies, it will be possible to add quirky features like nutritional information of the food being cooked and electronic recipes, to the workstation. The idea is to be a ‘smart counter’ for folks who don’t have the luxury of time to cook. Interesting!

Bento Box on a Daily Basis

Bento Box on a Daily Basis

I love steam-cooking food and if you keep scores with Masterchef (or Hell’s Kitchen) you soon realize that ‘keeping it simple’, is always the winning dish. Adding to the simplicity is this Bento Box portable steamer and lunchbox. In one clean sweep you get to cook a delicious healthy meal that stays fresh and vibrant. The box uses induction cooking elements and steams water through the course of the body. Different parts of the meal like vegetables, protein, and grains are separated into various containers for easy cooking.

An Evergreen Cooker Hood

An Evergreen Cooker Hood

Zephiro is an elegant cooker hood designed by Emo design for Falmec. Functional yet simple, the hood is equipped with e.Ion technology for filtration. This technology is an ionization system that reduces odor by eliminating organic molecules (bacteria, viruses and allergens) suspended in the air. The main advantage of this system is that it eliminates the use of exhaust tubes or vents for the hood. This not only supports clean architecture, but also enhances the hood with ceiling suspension.

Smart Flame Control

Smart Flame Control

Smart Angle is a visual aid for flame control on a gas stove. While cooking Chinese food, the hot Wok and ingredients are not the only thing you need to have a control over. The heat or the flame of the gas is the other key element you need to keep an eye on. The conventional way to control the flame is to bend at the waist and peek at the burner and then set the flame. Smart Angle eliminates this dangerous step by using refraction.

My Orange Squeeze

My Orange Squeeze

I really don’t see the point in an electric citrus fruit squeezer. I own one and end up putting in manual labor to hold the orange in place with firm grip. I may as well invest in a classy juicer like the Edwin; it is sustainable and made from smooth ceramic and wood. Squeezing the fruit will give my fingers good exercise and no more worrying about repairs! Unless I get clumsy and break the ceramic component, I guess I’m all set.

Not Your Grandma's Washboard

Not Your Grandma’s Washboard

But just as easy to use! As appliances become increasingly multi-functional, so does their complexity of use. Gorenje’s red dot winning SensoCARE washing mashing achieves balance between technological functionality and user friendliness by focusing a straightforward design approach on the UI and the machine’s overall ergonomics. The operations panel has been visually conceived in a way that makes selection much easier for the user, without posing any restrictions on custom adjustments and settings of the machine.

Enduring Espresso

Enduring Espresso

Wonsang Lee’s twist on the espresso machine appears ultra-modern, but takes inspiration from traditional Korean houses which are often designed to focus on exposure to outdoor landscaping. Like the traditional homes, the center of this design is where all the magic happens. Its open midsection is not only aesthetically unique, but an intuitive signal for where the user should place their mug.
