Wine cooler made from old refrigerators

The frix wine cooler is world’s first wine cooler made from old refrigerators, how double cool is that! It’s 3d printed and made from 100% recycled refrigerators that were shredded and transformed into 3d printing filament. All you have to do is fill it with a little water and put it in the freezer. Afterwards you can enjoy an evening with ice cold drinks.

DESIGN PROCESS

3d printing from old refrigerators

In 2016 we developed a 3d printing filament which is made from the plastic inside of old refrigerators. It’s a High Impact Polystyrene in short HIPS. Coolrec collects, grinds and sorts the material of discarded fridges. With our own Refil brand we’ve made this material into 3d printing filament. Check out how it’s made in the episode of made by destruction
