space age designers

// The Electrolux Design Lab is an annual global design competition that’s open to undergraduate and graduate industrial design students who can present ideas for household appliances of the future. The competition theme for 2010 is “The 2nd Space Age”, an exploration of the role domestic product design has in maximizing living space. The top 25 out of 1,300 ideas from 17 countries across the globe were chosen.  All 25 semi-finalists can be seen here. The Bio Tank invention called “FishWasher” by Akifusa Nakazawa in Japan is brilliant. It’s a dishwasher, composter and pet in one machine, you place plates into the dish tank so that robotic fish can clean plates.What an efficient pet.
