You fridge is one of the largest appliances in your home, let alone in your kitchen, but the Up-in-the-Air Refrigerator concept suggests a way for food be stored in a place that will allow you more space to move about.

Inspired by the age-old Chinese solution of suspending vegetables below the roof, designer Zhang Wei has developed a system for storing food in contraptions that look and operate much like helium balloons. The project proposes a collection of separate capsules to store different edible items, allowing each element to remain lightweight, and affording the consumer to cool each compartment to a specific temperature.

The Up-in-the-Air Refrigerator can be accessed by pulling it down with a hanging cord that works as a wireless charger, and each unit can float back up to the ceiling, thanks to its calculated release or production of gas. Stats for Lofty Food Fridges Trending: Older & Chilly
