Student invents doorless refrigerator that saves energy and reduces food spoilage:

His refrigerator is one of ten home appliance concepts chosen by Electrolux out of 1,200 entrants and will be on exhibit at the Triennale Design Museum in Milan, Italy, on Oct. 25. Electrolux has chosen finalists in the competition from Australia, Brazil, China, Denmark, England, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, and Spain. Electrolux says its intent with the competition is to give students “a brief that challenges them to create holistic sensorial experiences” and that represent “the kind of creative design thinking that surprises and challenges us and creates discussion about the future.” At Milan , a jury of design experts will award a first prize of 5,000 Euros and a six-month paid internship at Electrolux’s global design center. They will also award a second prize of 3,000 Euros and a third prize of 2,000 Euros.
