Wouldn’t it be easier to design a kitchen sans appliances? So often, a kitchen’s large appliances are a motley crew of shapes and finishes that distract from your overall scheme. In fact, it’s surprising how much appliances can vary, even within one brand. If all appliances matched, they would be instantly ready to drop into your thoroughly considered design.
Enter Fisher & Paykel’s new line of ActiveSmart™ refrigerators, designed to coordinate (sleekly) with the rest of the iconic brand’s appliances. The pieces are beautiful in themselves–the stainless steel detailing is minimalist and elegant–but won’t compete with your design (or with one other).
And ActiveSmart™ refrigerators are designed to save you time and worry in the long haul. With multiple air ducts, variable speed fans, and a humidity control system, ActiveSmart™ technology keeps your food fresher for longer, minimizing waste from spoiled food.

Above: The redesigned ActiveSmart™ refrigerator line complements other Fisher & Paykel appliances such as the 60cm Built-In Oven range and the award-winning DishDrawer™. The range has a variety of options in stainless steel and white as well as options to conceal your fridge behind cabinetry if desired.
Above: So long to dust-collecting dead space around the refrigerator. ActiveSmart™ refrigerators are available with surround kits to make the fridge blend seamlessly into nearby cabinetry.
Above: Fisher & Paykel completely redesigned the water dispenser, so it no longer takes up precious space inside the refrigerator. A sleek black interface and stainless steel strip detail make the dispenser coordinate stylishly with the rest of the Fisher & Paykel appliance family. Inside the fridge, an ergonomic control panel allows instant temperature control, and even flaunts an “ice boost” feature that produces extra ice stored in a separate, adjustable compartment–an entertainer’s dream.
Above: Fisher & Paykel’s New Zealand-based design team created new hinges that close quietly every time–midnight ice cream, anyone? The ActiveSmart™ French Door Ice & Water Refrigerator in 900mm wide is $2,850. A 790mm version and many more configurations are also available.
