Electrolux: THE 2010 COMPETITION

21/04/2010 by architectural competitions

Electrolux Design Lab 2010 invites global undergraduate and graduate industrial design students to create home appliances that consider shrinking domestic spaces. Your ideas will shape how people prepare and store food, wash clothes, and do dishes in the homes of 2050 when 74%* of the world’s population are predicted to live in an urban environment.  Growing populations living in concentrated areas dictate a need for greater space efficiency. This year, special consideration will be given to designers that submit a design within the context of a range or suite of solutions/appliances. Your design ideas should address key consumer requirements; being green, adaptive to time and space, and allowing for individualization.

Deadline: 1 May, 2010

Prizes:
1st prize: €5,000 + 6 months’ paid internship at an Electrolux global design center.

2nd prize: €3,000
3rd prize: €2,000

    There are many types of tiles available nowadays. The method of tile cleaning will depend more on the tile type.

    However there are couple of things to be followed to add the sheen and
    glow of the tiles.

    Do the regular floor cleaning
    Clean the spills as soon as they occur

    It is very crucial to clean dirt and water too as soon as they are split
    to prevent the stains. Place a doormat which helps in reduction of mud or dirt entering through footsteps.

    There are basically following tile floors where in one will use the tile
    and grout cleaning process, types of tiles are as follow –

    Ceramic
    Porcelain
    Stone

    Porcelain Tile cleaning

    Porcelain tiles maintenance is not difficult
    if the surface is cleaned regularly. The surface can be vacuum cleaned every day or just sweep it.
    The wet mopping is required once in a week. Use of mild floor
    cleaners will do for the mopping. One can make it at
    home by mixing vinegar and water.

    Ceramic Tile Cleaning

    The rule is followed here as well; remove the dirt as
    soon as possible. Vacuum clean the tiles every day or
    a simple broom can be used. Plain water or the special ceramic tile cleaners
    can be used for the wet mopping.

    Stone Tile Cleaning

    One need to be careful while cleaning the tiles made of stones as they are natural minerals.

    Never use harsh floor cleaners. Sweep or vacuum clean. After using any floor
    cleaner use a dry mop to soak any type of liquid residue.

    Grout Cleaning

    Along with the tile cleaning it is very important to regularly clean the
    grout, i.e. the lines between the tiles. Hence tile and grout
    cleaning goes simultaneously. Grout is porous in nature and attracts dirt,
    grease etc. The surface looks shabby if the grout is unclean.
    It can also be a cause of mildew or mould in the
    damp areas like bathrooms. It is best to have a seal (colour or clear) on the grout which will not only protect the surface but also acts as an anti-fungal agent.

    Many a times it gets difficult to maintain the floor due to hectic working schedules.
    Hence we come in picture and provide the tile and grout cleaning services to our clients at
    a very affordable price. Moreover the price depends on the type of the
    tiles, number of tiles and size of the tiles
    to be cleaned.

    Following steps are followed for the tile and grout cleaning after you contact us-

    Pre inspection of the tiles and floor.
    Shifting of the furniture, if any, from that space.
    Dry Sweeping of the surface
    Application of the suitable cleaning solution.
    Cleaning the surface with a soft pad.
    High pressure cleaning
    Mopping and drying the surface.

    We have our experts who carry special tools to do the tile and grout cleaning; the grout sealing is also done if ordered.

  4. Wash their face and hands taking great care around their
    eyes. Minimize a newborn baby’s resistance to the water by creating a womb-like atmosphere with a portable
    infant tub filled with warm water heated to approximately 90 degrees Fahrenheit.
    Hold your baby as much as possible and provide necessary hygiene when you are cleaning up her wastes.

  5. Some of the well known attractions of this most-sought after Rajasthan tourist destination are:.
    Ice Hockey is considered something of a national treasure in the Czech Republic, and Prague is home to the
    Sazka Arena (O2 arena), purpose built for the 2004 Men’s World Ice Hockey Championships.
    People have the option of going for premium or standard packages when they want to experience this life-changing experience.

  6. Calendars are handy items and will not just be tossed into
    the trash for no reason. This is an achievement that William Lyle and
    Walter Scott would be rather proud of. In fact,
    according to their Chief Operating officer, French Connection India has the potential to operate more than 30-40 stores in the next 5 years.
