TREETOPIA / Fridge adapted for wheelchairs

Treetopia is a fridge designed to be more adapted to wheelchair people. Todays refrigerating devices offers different difficulties for disabled people. Treetopia is a solution to those problems. It consist on an fridge with an elevating system that allow each floor to go out individually, one after the other. This way, each floor can be at hand. Furthermore the device allows the user to move all around it (360°). So every inch of the fridge can easily be reached. An intuitive touch interface is used to open the fridge and change the temperature.
Treetopia’s design is inspired by nature. Opening the fridge reminds a growing plant.
