Refrigerator from a Blind Point of View

 

How can the experience of blindness shed a new light on the refrigerator?

 

The refrigerator is one of the items that “froze” in time since their invention: the same deep, cold box, with several shelves, and one front, which produces “blind areas” and accessibility problem.

 

Delving into the world of blindness has led to the formulation of a new relationship between the user, the refrigerator, and the food in it – and as a result, to the formation of an intuitive space that the user can manage and navigate with ease.
