tree house by chuan shi from uk

designer's own words:

The home in 2020 will be simple and convenient, but healthy and poetryless. This design tried to bring the memory of tree house in our childhood to the kitchen in daily life. The fridge designed to combine with a tree branch shape storage system. Thanks for the semiconductor technology and integral power system, several single fridges can easily put together on the “tree”, or used individual.

It is a fridge design, combining with a tree branch shape storage system and several single fridges, which tried to bring the memory of tree house in our childhood to the kitchen in daily life.

2_pick_up.jpg One fridge has holes and pattern on the door as a fruit shelf. People can pick up a fruit from a tree. Another likes a bird house. Doors can slide away when put a hand in front of it. It’s funny for people can draw out an egg from a bird’s nest.
