The latest corporation & design school team-up comes from Electrolux and Milan's Domus Academy, who together produced the ReSource project to rethink the kitchen environment. "This was a true collaboration, not just teaching," says Bruno Lizotte, Design Manager at Electrolux. "The impressive response shows a dynamic way of looking at appliance design, offering novel solutions for the kitchen environment."
The resultant nine concepts rethink how we clean, store, cook, freshen and recycle.
The ReSource concepts include sustainable thinking and cultural reference points - both of which are increasingly important issues for product design as our planet's resources disappear and our changing habits and lifestyles are fed by multi-cultural influences in our quest for novelty.
