Target groups

Observation

Delivery that needs to be cooled needs to be put into the fridge after having been delivered to the customers. If the customer is not at home the delivery cannot be left on the stairs. Finally many customers do not order such delivery at all.

Conclusion

If the front door becomes a fridge cool delivery could be placed in it until the customers comes home.

Solution

A front door that combines a safe door and a fridge. By using the entire door enough space can be provided to fit a delivery. As the delivery can open it from outside, the customer doesn't need to be home. Smart functions can start the cooling system half an hour before the delivery. The front door fridge perfectly uses the space between the walls and the appartment.
