Root – A food storing unit.
When it comes to storing food effectively and well, conventional refrigerators is not always the answer. Root provides appropriate storage for different kinds of food, with the goal of minimizing waste. By sectioning the piece into compartments with different temperatures and humidity, food keeps longer; additionally the sections provide a clear overview and increased accessibility. The unit can easily be retrofitted since it has the measurements of a standard fridge.
