Imagine an organic refrigerator in which you don't just place your newly purchased food, but you also have to opportunity to harvest your own produce. Talk about fresh! This concept kitchen appliance by Yolegmma Márquez, Emily Kvale and Erin Glaberson is for a space-efficient cooler with the capacity to hold every type of edible in a specialized compartment, including planter-like cubbies for actually growing herbs and things in soil.

Mushrooms and seasonings can be raised from seeds under delicate light and behind glass cabinet doors. Full picked vegetables can be hung from hooks within a freshness chamber, keeping them moist but free of mold. To control the temperature and conditions of the various irregular drawers and sections of this Verdant Eco Refrigerator, a smart touchscreen panel is integrated in the top left door for intuitive interaction.
