A fridge for flats.

Totem Fridge: a fridge for people who share a house

For creator Stefan Buchberger, a design student at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna, the idea grew out of a semester-long theme about keeping personal space clean and tidy. “I decided to create Flatshare fridge because there is nothing more disgusting than a dirty fridge in a shared flat,” he says. “At the time, I was living in such a flat!”

The fridge consists of a base station and up to four stackable modules. The modules allow each individual user to have his or her own refrigerator space and can be customized with various colorful skins as well as with add-ons like a bottle opener or a whiteboard.

This definitely would have come in handy when I was flatting. Sometimes I’d clean out the fridge and find remnants of who knows what left behind by long gone flatmates. Also, everyone has their own clearly defined space! This would backfire on me though as I was the one guilty of filling the entire fridge with my food…
