Personal Refrigerator. Designed by Ken Kirtland IV

Most mini-fridges have the worst of two worlds: they take up too much space, and hold too little. In addition, most are eyesores that disrupt the space they occupy. I set out to discover a solution.
Key Finding

Things we love do not take up space, they earn their place in our lives and become a space all their own. A fridge that users enjoy experiencing through interesting design and joyful interactions will not consume the space it occupies in the same way that an undesirable cube does.

Silo has three Lazy Susan shelves making all items easy to reach. This design not only makes the most use of silo's cylindrical shape, it creates a joyful and memorable interaction. Top and bottom diffuse lights softly and luxuriously light the interior.
Silo's built in ice-makers fills an integrated stainless steel ice bucket right on its top. Perfect for scoops and chilling bottles. The ice bucket can transform silo into the center of a social gathering or can be removed and brought wherever the moment desires. 
Silo minus

At 30 in. tall, silo minus is the height of a nightstand, making it the perfect spot for bedtime snacks and drinks. Classy designs grants silo access into spaces normal mini-fridges would disrupt, such as the living room and bathroom.
