considering the lack of egg management devices that are available in today’s market, designers seungyeon lee, dooyoung yang,  junghyun ahn, and suyeon hwang, have introduced the ‘eggbox’ refrigerator. aiming to help consumers keep their eggs organized and safe, ‘eggbox’ targets freshness and hygiene at the same time. worlds first egg refrigerator 1



‘eggbox’ maintains an optimum temperature of 41 fahrenheit and humidity of 70% so that the eggs can be kept in the best condition and can be tasted fresh at any time. in addition, it protects against harmful substances that can be found on eggshells by conducting UV sterilization care. a smart egg rail uses dynamics, allowing eggs to flow smoothly but securely along while letting users take the eggs out safely without breaking. this smart rail also highlights the freshness dates with different lighting colors, making it intuitive for consumers to recognize the expired eggs.

the innovative design features two doors: a sliding one to put the eggs in, and a mini-home bar to take them out. the mini-home bar is finished in silicon so that it protects eggs from breaking. the ‘eggbox’ project was conceived based on the rice straw nest concept. in a way, with this product, one can experience the feeling of taking out fresh eggs from a hen early in the morning. the refrigerator can store up to 30 eggs to meet various users’ purchase patterns.

influenced by constructivism, the lines and faces of the design were emphasized, generating a refined look with modern materials. furthermore, ‘eggbox’ can create the atmosphere of the kitchen with any color you want. the front part can be changed to any color and material to suit your preference. in this way, the item can easily change the whole atmosphere in the kitchen while keeping the eggs fresh.
