Refrigerator-Aquarium Grows on Us


By Cari Martens

Here’s a kitchen appliance that does double duty. French designer Mathieu Lehanneur has created Local River, a concept for a ‘refrigerator-aquarium’ that breeds freshwater fish for eating, and grows vegetables at the same time.

The idea is very Green Echo, meaning it has a basis in nature. What’s more natural than growing freshwater fish and vegetables for home consumption? We see this as a really beautiful concept for the kitchen of the future.
