ELECTROLUX CHEST FREEZER

During my industrial design internship at Electrolux, I was given the opportunity to work on new lid liners for a series of chest freezers. 

 Create a lid liner that helps illustrate cold air flowing within the freezer itself, while also using lighting to improve the visibility of the contents inside.

The goal was to convey air flow, and this was done by using various line work and surface changes to convey the movement of air within the freezer.

The way we designed the incandescent bulb into the liner allows for more light coverage overall which improves visibility while looking into the chest freezer.  Due to costs, the lighting area was confined to just the center.

We created a second liner style that used LED lighting to keep the liner costs down and allow for better flexibility when adapting the liner to various chest freezer sizes.
