Pursuing the fridge of the future
The demands on future products set the agenda for Sandvik’s research and development. Together with a classroom full of children and global appliances manufacturer Electrolux, we went on a journey to explore the fridge of the future.
In collaboration with our customers we strive to find innovative solutions and products to meet future requirements. Committed to getting a head start, we turned to the next generation of consumers for help.
As documented in a video, we sent Anders, one of our materials experts, to a school and let the 7 to 8-year-old students draw their vision of a future fridge. Together with Electrolux, we selected a few ideas and turned them into one concept – a tree-inspired, interactive and modular refrigerator.
We also visited the Electrolux labs to see what was already in the pipeline and learn what requirements we could expect to be placed on our compressor valve steel.
