“Get back to your roots with the Groundfridge prefab root cellar.”

Groundfridge

The Groundfridge is an autonomic operating and naturally cooled cellar: an innovative version of the traditional root cellar for today’s sustainable companies and cosmopolitans with their own vegetable garden who lead modern, self-providing lives. The Groundfridge uses the insulating capacity of the ground and the cooler night air temperatures. This allows the temperature within the Groundfridge to remain steady and cool throughout the entire year – the perfect temperature to store fruits, vegetables, wine and cheese for example. The lightweight Groundfridge is very easy to transport and install and placing it doesn’t require any permits like a normal cellar would.
