Usage
The Groundfridge is developed as an actively cooled cellar for storing food: root vegetables, potatoes, tomatoes, eggplants, onions, pumpkins, cabbages or cheeses are but a few examples of products that are especially suited to be stored within the Groundfridge. It can store the harvest of a 250 m2 vegetable garden – enough to prepare about 350 meals.

The size makes the Groundfridge particularly useful for individuals and companies, restaurants or landowners who deal with producing and storing large amounts of food in a sustainable manner. Urban-farmers with a (communal) vegetable garden could benefit as well from this type of storage, and share it with their neighbors or friends.

Pop up cellar
A traditional cellar is a structure – a fixed part of your house – whereas the Groundfridge is a product. It can be used in any way and any place you want. Are you relocating? Simply take your Groundfridge with you!

Added benefits: installing the Groundfridge requires no permits – like digging a normal cellar would – and when placed, no soil needs to be disposed of. The lightweight and easy to install Groundfridge is therefore also an interesting option for temporary events like a (food) festival or pop up restaurant.

As it hardly uses any power, it could serve equally well in developing countries or remote, off-grid areas where the watertight structure can protect valuable crops and products.

An innovative wine cellar
Wine is best kept in a dark, odor-free environment with a steady temperature. Proper humidity and generous ventilation are an absolute must. That is exactly what the Groundfridge provides!

A place to be
Apart from the functional and financial benefits the Groundfridge may provide, a great deal of focus was put on experiencing the Groundfridge and its look and feel, as well. The friendly round curves and broad stairs that invite to be sat upon, make the Groundfridge a nice place to be.
