The refrigirator of the future?

A lot of modern refrigirators ideas appeared on the market in the last years but I can say without being wrong that the robot fridge that preserves food in morphing gel is unique and amazing! It is a concept created by russian designer Yuriy Dmitriev , a futuristic interpretation of a classic home appliance.

There are no doors or shelves and the food is cooled by a non sticky, odourless biopolymer gel. A lot of interesting details in the below pictures.

But my question is…how do you clean it? It happened to all of us to forget stuff inside our fridge that started to look and smell badly..

Metal and wood modern art furniture

Israel-based designer Hilla Shamia has created a modern line of wood and aluminum pieces that strikes a balance between the beauty of raw nature and the sleek, refined edge of metal.

The cast aluminum bleeds into the gaping cracks of the knotty, weathered wood in a very natural and beautiful way highlighting the contrast between materials.

The Wood Casting collection has been nominated for the 2013 German Design Award.

The negative factor of burnt wood is transformed into aesthetic and emotional value by preservation of the natural form of the tree trunk, within explicit boundaries. The general, squared form intensifies the artificial feeling, and at the same time keeps the memory of the material. ( Hilla Shamia )
