Recently, Swedish appliance giant Electrolux threw down the gauntlet at Milanese design school Domus Academy. The challenge? To rethink standard kitchen appliances. What you see here are the nine concepts that graduate students developed, presented in a cohesive series called "ReSource."

Electrolux stresses that the concepts, though not real, are based on existing technology. “To re-source is to re-generate, re-energize, re-mix and re-lax,” says Bruno Lizotte, Design Manager at Electrolux, “and the appropriate space for this multi-tasking is, more than ever before, the home and its vibrant centre – the kitchen.”
