Electrolux 2006 Design Lab winner

The Electrolux Design Lab is an annual design competition open to students around the world, and designed to showcase their creative ideas for appliance designs that address the needs of the consumers of the future and use technology, and innovative design to revolutionize the industry. Last year one of the winners was a pair of vacuum shoes!

This year it’s a food storage/carrier device similar to the stackable devices already available but this one is meant to be able to keep food hot or cold.

Designed to invoke the shape of an antique Middle Eastern food container called “sefertasi”, the Nevale Food Carrier is a concept for a carrier that serves hot or cold meals on the go. Built in layers and featuring a hood with a digital control screen, the Nevale food carrier can store up to four different hot and/or cold meals inside.

The digital display provides ongoing information about the storage conditions in each layer and can be programmed to launch automatic reheating at specific times. For cold food storage, the Nevale maintains a perfect preservation temperature.

The layers all operate independently to ensure that both hot and cold foods are stored at their optimal conditions, all in the same carrier. Using a storage vacuum system that keeps air out, the Nevale appliance keeps food safe and free from bacteria throughout the day.

Designed to encourage the prevalence of homemade and healthy food outside of the home with ease and effectiveness, the Nevale food carrier can help usher in an era of more conscientious eating on the go.
