Living with roommates is inevitable at some point or another, and it’s a well known fact that there are rules and boundaries to abide by when co-habitating. For some households, one of these most common rules revolves around food. While some think that whatever is around for them to see and eat is free game– others don’t agree so much.
As a part of Electrolux’s Design Lab contest (held annually), Austrian designer Stefan Buchberger created the “Flatshare” fridge. Created as a modular piece for those who live with multiple people per flat– this fridge is made up of multiple components. Each tetris-type block stacks on top of the other to create individually customizable refrigerators that ultimately stack up to look like a single unit. But in reality, each user has their own privacy and there’s no excuse to eat the last of someone else’s groceries.
