Providence, Rhode Island has a population of 45,000 college students. Many mini-fridges are not utilizing the space they consume. They typically use a great amount of energy, and are thrown out after just one year of use.

SLATE is an organized, compartmentalized, aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient compact fridge. WHAT DOES IT DO? Its drawer systems allow for maximum organization while being energy efficient. It's size, being the standard height of counter spaces, permits one to utilize the top surface as a cutting surface. SLATE becomes a part of the environment not just another object in it.
