As part of the design process Fisher & Paykel do a lot of research and collaboration with kitchen designers, architects and developers into design and material trends. Recently they have seen a trend towards warmer, natural materials and organic textures being applied with increasing popularity in the kitchen, and they have seen the trend for handle-less furniture doors take hold. The trend for recessed handles is functional, a detail that delivers an undisrupted and seamless flow through out a kitchen and embodies the customer’s desire for a minimal look. Taking these insights from their partners and from the environment, Fisher & Paykel are launching two new free-standing recessed handle multi-door fridge-freezers this month. The unique matt black glass RF610AZUB5 & real steel RF610ANUX5.
Both products have recessed handles and perfectly flat doors for a flush fit with kitchen cabinetry, and have ActiveSmart™ Food-care technology, which intelligently adjusts temperature, airflow and humidity, to provide the optimal storage temperature and keep food fresher for longer. In the bottom-right compartment is a variable temperature zone, which, at the touch of a button can easily convert the compartment to suit different food types, giving the consumer storage flexibility. They can choose from Freezer, Soft Freeze, Chill & Fridge Modes.
With any design functionality is key, and food-care is at the heart of refrigeration design. It’s about controlling the environment around the food and keeping the temperature as consistent as possible. The fridge is the most used door in the household, so Fisher & Paykel use ActiveSmart™ Food-care technology to keep food fresher for longer.
As with all Fisher & Paykel fridge-freezer these new products are beautiful to use, with soft-close drawers, full extension slides for easy access, and great lighting for excellent visibility. They have been designed with detail and durability in mind reflected by the choice of quality materials and technology. They use real stainless steel, or solid matt black, scratch-resistant glass.
