Energy-saving Italian design for your fridge
Have you always wondered how to keep your fruits and veggies fresher for a longer amount of time? When Fabio Molinas considered this question, he found his answer not by changing what is inside a fridge, but by thinking outside of the fridge. The result was Oltu, a storage system that works with the wasted energy of your fridge to provide the optimal conditions for fruits and vegetables.
Made from ceramic, Oltu is a set of double-walled containers that are places on top of a refrigerator. The heat produced from the back of the fridge, which is wasted energy, causes water in the space between Oltu’s walls to evaporate, producing a coooling effect. Without adding an external energy source, Molinas has created a system that uses the lost energy from a common household appliance to maintain fruits and vegetables at the ideal temperature and humidity. It’s the best way to think outside the fridge!
