OLTU is a minimalist design created by Spain-based designer Fabio Molinas. I was checking out my newest post on Skim Milk, and I fortuitously stumbled upon OLTU. OLTU is like an organism that takes advantage of the heat produced from the back of a fridge, which in today’s fridges, is wasted energy, and uses it to help to cool the “totem” of vegetables via cooling by evaporation. The heat rises and affects the double wall of the clay containers, which, with the help of the water contained between their walls, is able to lower the temperature thanks to the heat extracted from their interior, recreating the ideal atmosphere for the needs of each group of vegetables. This is also a sustainable product because, as part of its functioning does not depend on energy, costs are minimal and, most importantly, each item is kept fresher.
