The Groundfridge has been upgraded and is ready for sale.
Keeping your food cool without using a refrigerator. The Groundfridge is an innovative product based on a basic principle that goes back centuries.
It is the ultimate innovative version of the traditional root cellar. It answers to the needs of people and companies who have their own vegetable garden or wine collection and who lead modern, self-providing lives.
Therefore it is not only a product that fits very well in today’s society but also the cheapest basement without a building permit.
How does it work
The Groundfridge is dug in and covered with the excavated soil from its location. This covering layer of soil is about 1 meter thick and has sufficient insulating properties to make the core temperature barely vary. Furthermore, there is a ventilation system that refreshes the air in the Groundfridge during the night.
The design is clear like a cellar with some friendly details: it’s spherical, and the white, smooth surface makes it feel spacious and clean.
It is designed by Floris Schoonderbeek and nominated for a Dutch Design Award in 2015.
The past years, the Groundfridge has been further developed into a fully-fledged product and the first Groundfridges are now being installed.
Also, there is a Groundfridge on display at “De Kleine Campus” in Arnhem, the living, work and experimental place of designer Floris Schoonderbeek.
The Groundfridge has become more constant and easier to control for the user.
The time-controlled ventilator, which inhales extra cold air at the coldest moments of the night, ensures that the Groundfridge stays at the right temperature during the season.
