Sliding door refrigerator ECAPS / Product design

Sliding door refrigerator ECAPS

The traditional Side-by-side refrigerator is prone to lose its coolness when you open the refrigerator door, resulting in loss of coolness and needs space for clearance area to open the doors, making ineffective use of space.

The stereotypical idea of ‘Refrigerator doors are in side-by-side style’ is reversed for ECAPS refrigerators, which was inspired by traditional Korean sliding doors. ECAPS refrigerator placed right side for placing frequently used food products, and sub-products on the left side to reduce coolness loss, and provides excellent space usage due to the sliding doors.
