Fresh Date / Preservation

Fresh Date
Fresh Date



The unique idea behind Fresh Date is that a date will be printed on the food storage bag when putting food into the fridge. Thus, there is a clear indication of how long the food can be kept. Fresh Date is suitable for usage at home or at supermarkets, making it much more convenient for people to always know how fresh their food is.

Food management is a very important aspect in fridge design. With this design the freshness of food is instantly visible in a clear and simple way. Fresh Date solves the problem that, usually, users cannot clearly see the expiration time and storage time. It is easy, intuitive, and funny.
