Habitus Loves… Fridges

From oysters to orange juice, we rely on our fridges to keep our foodstuffs fresh and cool. This week we take a look at the eight most effective, good looking and futuristic designs in the world of refrigeration.

Vario Cool


Created by: Gaggenau

Why we love it: The first modular system made from fully integrated built-in appliances including refrigerators, freezers, fridge-freezer combinations and wine cabinets, the Vario Cool range can be combined in countless variations to form an elegant cooling wall. Quiet, sturdy and full of the latest technologies (including motorised shelves that can be adjusted while fully loaded), almost all of the range has been awarded an A+ energy rating.

Fab 32


Created by: Smeg

Why we love it: Combining Smeg’s signature quality with a hark back to a retro 50s aesthetic, the Fab32 lends a playful twist to the kitchen while delivering the functionality expected of a modern appliance.

Pro 48


Created by: Sub-Zero

Why we love it: Born of 100% steel (and a good bit of bravado), the Sub-Zero PRO 48 with Glass Door Refrigerator/Freezer is a true masterpiece of preservation. Its glass door, sculpted metal, dual refrigerator with three evaporators and advanced controls marry performance and design in a bold new way for home refrigeration.

Where you can get it: Winning Appliances






Created by: Miele

Why we love it: An exceptional premium range of kitchen appliances, Miele’s MasterCool has evolved from the brand’s quality and design philosophy. The superior materials, sophisticated design and perfect functionality, precisely attuned in every detail to your everyday requirements, attest to the sheer excellence of this range.

Ebony Range


Created by: Fisher & Paykel

Why we love it: With a glossy black finish that showcases the latest in Electrolux technology including touch electronic controls and sleek frameless black hardened acrylic, complemented with stainless steel handles to meet discerning tastes, the Ebony fridge is as striking as it is effective at cooling and preserving.

Created by: Fisher & Paykel

Why we love it: Built on the concept of distributed refrigeration, the CoolDrawer combines ActiveSmart technology with a multi-temperature drawer-based fridge that can be placed anywhere in the kitchen, home or entertainment area. CoolDrawer provides five temperature settings to deliver total flexibility – fridge, freezer, chill, pantry and wine mode, combining intelligence with convenience.

Bio Robot


Designed by: Yuriy Dmitriev

Why we love it: The Bio Robot fridge works on the principle of a biopolymer that helps to keep all the food items cool through luminescence. The non-sticky gel surrounds the food and the strong surface tension of the gel helps to build separate pods for them. The fridge offers plenty of space to hold eatables without mixing the odor. And it looks incredible.

Where you can get it: The future.
