Generally, the fridge is not commonly the place where one attempts to steal from hotel, but there is something within the After Dinner Minibar that you can take as a souvenir without procuring a bill. Designer Chiara Gustinelli presents guests with something more exciting than bathrobes and floppy slippers.
This unusual appliance is actually a refrigerator, despite its resemblance to an overturned dresser. Each of the vertical drawers does in fact open, embodying the perfect orientation for storing bottles of wine and a cocktail kit. Most of the piece reveals a sleek face of white Corian, yet bamboo side panelling is its first noticeable playful peculiarity.
Every silver handle on the After Dinner Minibar can actually be removed from its place and manipulated to reveal a corkscrew, a bottle opener and tongs. Patrons are indirectly urged to exercise their suppressed pathological deviance, and presumably the hand grips can be easily replaced.
