TOK-TOK. / Home Appliances


This is a solution about refrigerators’ operation and spatial space. We notice that in daily life, people are often encountered with a troublesome problem as using refrigerators. When you need to take out deep articles, troublesome articles in the front should be taken out. This is a troublesome operation. In design, TOK-TOK uses a rotary method to solve such a problem easily. Rotation makes the spatial application become more flexible. In addition, we apply the characteristic action of “knocking” in refrigerators. When you stand in front of refrigerators, knock a door with “tok tok”.The refrigerators’ door will be opened for you.
