This refrigerator is based on a new design concept aimed at combining the functions of furniture and cooling appliances to make a hybrid product. The exterior of the table-high refrigerator features natural wood and metal surfaces, so that it blends in harmoniously with living or sleeping environments. Furthermore, thanks to a thermoelectric device, it runs very quietly. The lower of the two drawers offers a good deal of space for drinks; lighting is controlled by sensor.
Statement by the Jury
By use of wood for the front design, this compact refrigerator gives the impression of an item of furniture and blends well into the living environment.
