I Green Concept Kitchen: Minus a Fridge

We remember when Vanessa over at Green as a Thistle unplugged her refrigerator. We thought to ourselves, there goes her green lifestyle experiment -- that fridge will be running again in a matter of days. I mean, how do you live without a refrigerator? Could you do it?

What if you had a kitchen designed to help you go fridge-less?

The i green concept kitchen (which was designed in collaboration with Italian kitchen brand,Veneta Cucine, by Indian designer Nilay Shah) has no refrigerator. Instead, it has baskets and trays made from wood and biodegradable plastics.

The idea is that with a kitchen like this you would buy only what you need. You'd create less waste and you'd use less energy without the fridge.

We like the way the kitchen looks like its own miniature farmers market ... but is a kitchen like this practical? Is there a market for it?

(*We've tried, for the last hour, to find a good link to the designers' page for this kitchen with no luck. If anyone finds a good link, please leave it in the comments. Thanks!)
