Part of the refresh of the Fisher & Paykel Activesmart platform of refrigeration products, the ice and water dispenser is the most visual element and a key touchpoint for users. In its previous incarnation it was also the interface for controlling the functions and features of both the fridge and freezer compartments. In this version however, functionally and aesthetically it is paired back and simplified to reveal a more sleek and timeless design.
Considerable work went into specifying the material finish of the housing to ensure a subtle matt finish with long-term scratch and stain resistance. In-mould decoration was used to achieve the specified piano-black fascia to match the housing, as well as the chrome details which add depth and highlights to the product as a whole.
