HA NOI (VNS) — Vietnamese young people, including design students across the nation, have been invited to participate in Design Lab, a global design competition hosted by the Swedish household and professional appliances manufacturer, Electrolux.

Launched for the first time in Viet Nam, the contest invites participants to submit innovative design ideas for future home environments. Under this year's theme, "Creating Healthy Homes", contestants will have to describe how people in the future can enjoy health and well-being, live in pleasant environments and take care of themselves and others in a way that is creative, sustainable and effortless.

The participants are required to submit a description of an idea, a visual sketch illustrating the idea, as well as provide a description of the consumer benefits.

The competition opens for entries on March 1 and the submission deadline is April 6. The winner of the competition will be chosen by a jury of world-renowned professionals. Alongside a 5,000-euro prize, the winner will also have the chance to join a six-month paid internship at Electrolux's global design centre. Further information about the competition can be found at the Design Lab website: http://electroluxdesignlab.com

Last year, the design competition received over 1,700 submissions from over 60 countries.

In Viet Nam, the Design Lab's opening ceremony on Wednesday at Ha Noi's University of Industrial Fine Arts was jointly organised by the Swedish Embassy and Electrolux Vietnam as part of a series of activities to celebrate the 45th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Viet Nam and Sweden. — VNS
