The workshop aimed to define innovative concepts for the chest freezer sector, with particular attention to ergonomics and usability aspects of the product, to reduce environmental impact, to find technological and aesthetic innovation.
 
The workshop was a research phase of the HighChest project and involved 18 students of the Master’s Degree in Design. They worked intensively for a week and starting from the results of the main research carried out by the interdisciplinary team and the brief prepared by the company. The workshop presented by the HighChest project leader Alessandro Aronica, was followed by professors and researchers of the Department of Architecture (DIDA). The company technical group selected three concepts based on the principles of: technical feasibility and cost; green behavior; Innovation design (integration with other devices also).
 
Students whose projects were selected: Alessandro Betti, Irene Fiesoli, Lorenzo Melani. 
Interesting part for each selected concepts: style innovation, customization, interface.
