- how to combine new design languages with high functionality
- how to exploit the diversity of PU for the household appliances of the future

The fascinating thing about the new refrigerator concept from BASF Polyurethanes is that it does much so more than just refrigerate. coolpure 1.0 from BASF is a demonstration of creativity and technical ingenuity in exploiting the incredible versatility of polyurethane - thus opening up new possibilities in terms of materials and design. For the fridge of the future.

coolpure 1.0 is the concept for the fridge of the future

coolpure 1.0 opens up totally new fields of application for polyurethane in the refrigerator sector, where the emphasis until now has been mainly on insulation. These fields are joined by spectacular ideas for totally new design and a visionary slant on production.

coolpure 1.0 is a unique blend of innovative materials and functionality with modern design, a futuristic formal language and the use of sustainable materials. Our objective is just as clear-cut as our strategy: Rather than produce refrigerators itself, BASF aims to demonstrate with cutting-edge designs all that is possible with PU as a material. Transcending the bounds of pure insulation, it is capable of inspiring refrigerator manufacturers to develop new approaches.
