Electrolux Design Lab 2006 Winner & Finalists

We just recently posted about a keen vacuum shoes concept from the 2005 Electrolux Design Lab competition, an annual international invitation for designers from around the world to propose home appliance concepts for the near and far future. We think the 2006 finalists page is worth peeking if you’re curious about the possibilities the future may have in store for our kitchens and homes. There’s something wonderfully optimistic about blue sky designs (something I’ve rarely had the chance to do myself as a product designer), and we hope some of these concepts see the light of day as actual consumer products in some shape or form. Our favourite is the Hydrosphere (shown above, right), a sort of BioDome for herb, fruit and vegetable growing inside the home using solar panels for a self-sustaining system of produce farming. -via Inhabitat.com
