Celsius: A Modular Refrigerator
We all have refrigerators. The trouble is that the basic design hasn’t changed in about 100 years. Most of the fridges that I’ve had were pretty similar. They hide away food so that it doesn’t go bad. There isn’t much more to say about this, except that it’s possible to improve upon this. That’s why I think that Celsius is a really good idea. Celsius and other fridges with glass doors enable you to see exactly what you have in your fridge to make sure that food doesn’t go to waste.
Celsius was designed for the student designawards of Australia. It displays food through the double-glazed and tinted doors. The design is modular and allows users to customize the fridge to their own personal needs. There is a touch-sensitive control panel on the door of each cabinet, which allows you to set the temperature. It has full-extension drawers and pantry-style cabinets to optimally store food. There are some more custom inserts that all people to store fruits, vegetables, meat and fish, dairy, jars, and wine in special shelves. More cabinets can be purchased to expand storage size. This means that you won’t need to purchase a whole new fridge once you run out of space. You’ll just add more modules.
I thought that this was a great way to store food. The problem I have with glass door fridges is that they are quite expensive. The usual fridge isn’t that big of a purchase, but add in a few options and you can spend a lot of money on them. I hope that by having a modular unit, it will cut down on the cost. Celsius would make a great entry in any apartment. [via PicoCool]
