Here’s a brilliant fridge concept that’s perfectly designed for the thousands of college students who’ve recently moved back to school and have to deal with unwanted roommates in order to save money. The Flatshare Fridge was created by Stefan Buchberger from the University of Applied Arts in Vienna for the annual Electrolux Design Lab competition, and it features a modular design that’s segmented into separate compartments allowing each ‘flatmate’ to have their own mini fridge.
Each compartment has a tall section for bottles as well as sections for vegetables (ha!) and more importantly, frozen foods. It’s a great solution if you’re always fighting with your roommates over who bought what food, and when it comes to cleaning, you’re only responsible for your own relatively small compartment. The modular design also allows additional compartments to be stacked on top to accommodate new roommates, and the only feature I can really see missing is a locking mechanism on each door to protect your food from moochers.
