The Electrolux Design Lab final to be held on October 9th in Zurich, showcasing the appliances of the future for the Internet generation. Here are 9 finalists in no particular order. Designed for the students sharing a flat, the refrigerator has a base station and 4 stackable modules, so each individual user has his or her own refrigerator space, which can be customized with various colorful skins as well as with add-ons like a bottle opener or a whiteboard. With convenient handles, a module can be easily picked and hooked up to a base station in a new flat. Designer Stefan Buchberger just scooped the Electrolux Design Lab 2008 award with the concept, explaining: “I decided to create Flatshare fridge because there is nothing more disgusting than a dirty fridge in a shared flat. If you move to new flat, you can just transport your module like a suitcase and hook it up to the base station in your new flat.” Electrolux – Stefan Buchberger untitled9
