LIKE A SECOND NATURE
Entertainment and food usually go hand in hand since ages. Today, food and beverages can be considered to be a core part of any social gathering, be it a small soccer-night with friends or a large family get together or just a peaceful time watching a movie at home. During this time, getting food/drinks from the kitchen can be a moment spoiler.
To avoid this, this mini-refrigerator concept takes inspiration from the functionality of bar carts and fuses it with the side table for a perfect match. It acts as a side table for your food as well as a handy refrigerated storage unit for ice and drinks, which can be moved around if needed.
Simple and minimal design blends in efficiently with all types of interior aesthetics. The handle less drawer design keeps the design compact and slim. The drawers can be open or closed by simple and gently pushing in/out. The hidden and remapped cooling system reduces exhaust heat and channels it towards the base and away from the user to cause minimal inconvenience, while being aesthetically beautiful.
A TROLLEY WHICH COOLS
The top lid is to be used to keep drinks and/or food items when ever need. The "Chill Zone" can be used to keep the drinks cool while in the open. The Chill Zone can accommodate a variety of bottle and glass sizes, and can be activated or deactivated as and when required with a button's touch.
USABLE AND CLEANABLE
The tray-lid is coated with a teflon-like compound, which enables effortless cleaning of any in-advert stains or spills caused by the food or drinks kept on it. The lid also houses capacitive touch controls, which are secured against water damage, to regulate cooling and activate the Chill Zone.
EASY ON THE EYES
Design aesthetics which blend in effortlessly with a large range of interior styles, and use of homely materials like fabrics and wood trims, the overall design does not look alien or out of place to the entire warm and cozy vibe while still coming out to be premium and sophisticated. The aesthetics can be customized to the user's taste through a wide variety of body and drawer panel colours and material to suit the individual needs.
