Industrial designer Fabio Molinas makes a habit of solving problems using wasted materials and energy. For his OLTU produce storage concept, Molinas designed a "totem" of ceramic and metal containers for storing fresh fruits and vegetables, complete with small water reservoirs in each wall. When the totem is placed on top of a refrigerator, the heat generated by the fridge evaporates the water, which in turn cools the totem and keeps the produce fresh. [via Design Milk]
