Refrigerator 02

Since its birth some 80 years ago, the refrigerator has hardly changed at all: It began as, and continues to be, a large steel box with a thick, closed door behind which our groceries disappear. But in point of fact, the refrigerator is not suited for keeping everything we put in it: for example, it is too cold for keeping cheese, and mushrooms take on its smells and tastes. Not to mention the fact that attractive products deserve to be visible. Refrigerator 02 is a small, transparent storage appliance, in which sweets and snacks not only keep well, but also look good.
