The Thoughtful Design Innovator.
Do you remember the last time you opened a gift that made you say
"Oh! How did you know? That's exactly what I wanted!" That's the kind of
feeling that the designers at Electrolux seek to evoke in everyone who chooses
or uses one of our products. We devote time, knowledge, and a great deal of
thought to anticipating and creating the kind of appliances that our customers
really need and want.
This kind of thoughtful care means innovating with insight. Not design for
design's sake, but design for the user's sake. For us, thoughtful design means
making appliances easier to use and tasks more enjoyable to perform, freeing
our customers to experience the ultimate 21st century luxury: ease of mind.
Our aim is to make this ease of mind more available to more people in more
parts of their everyday lives, all over the world.
The "Thinking of you" promise from Electrolux goes beyond meeting the needs
of today's consumers. It also means we're committed to making appliances
safe for the environment - now and for future generations.
Electrolux. Thinking of you.
