Electrolux Design Lab Competition 2012 has awarded the three best talented home appliance designers, selected from ten global finalists. The finals were held at the Triennale Design Museum in Milan with the jury composed of Electrolux Design Director Thomas Johansson, award winning chef Davide Oldani, distinguished designer Dante Donegani and popular design blogger Kelly Beall,

The winning concept called Aeroball is a collection of luminescent, hovering balls that can filter air in a room and make it fragrant. The second prize went to Ben de la Roche of New Zealand with his concept called Impress - a refrigerated wall that allows the user to press storage containers and bottles directly into the wall. Impress uses thermo-acoustic technology and gases such as argon and helium that are non-ozone depleting and harmless to the environment. Third prize went to Christopher Holm-Hansen of Denmark with his design called Tastee - a taste indicator, in the form of a spoon, that utilises receptors based on the human taste bud to tell you what ingredients you need to improve your cooking. With the concept "Design Experience", the competition had attracted many students in designing field.
