The staple refrigerator is due for a dramatic overhaul and Future Connect by Yujie Peng, an industrial designer based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, may be just what people have been waiting for without even realizing it. It replaces the upright rectangular design with a modular system that essentially does away with the classic fridge and freezer separation. Considering that hectic lives constantly leads to spoiled food, something has to change.

Future Connect by Yujie Peng compartmentalizes food into trays that can also be used for cooking. In a way, it encourages people to prepare their meal ahead of time to avoid any unnecessary wastage. More than that, the trays inform people when a food item is approaching its expiry date to ensure that they eat it before then.
