Electrolux Flatshare Fridge designed for squabbling students

Mon 03 2009

The Electrolux Design Lab final to be held on October 9th in Zurich, showcasing the appliances of the future for the Internet generation. Here are 9 finalists in no particular order. Designed for the students sharing a flat, the refrigerator has a base station and 4 stackable modules, so each individual user has his or her own refrigerator space, which can be customized with various colorful skins as well as with add-ons like a bottle opener or a whiteboard. With convenient handles, a module can be easily picked and hooked up to a base station in a new flat. Designer Stefan Buchberger just scooped the Electrolux Design Lab 2008 award with the concept, explaining: “I decided to create Flatshare fridge because there is nothing more disgusting than a dirty fridge in a shared flat. If you move to new flat, you can just transport your module like a suitcase and hook it up to the base station in your new flat.” Electrolux – Stefan Buchberger untitled9
