Chuichui, once a stray dog in Shanghai, has become a star on Weibo(the Chinese twitter) because of her new dog house made from a refrigerator.

The story goes back a few weeks ago in Shanghai. A product design studio called y-town has found and adopted Chuichui unprepared. To figure out a temporary space for her to sleep, the designers recycled an old Bosch refrigerator and renovated it into a dog shelter in their garden along the Huangpu River. The result was an almost luxuries house for the little dog—the existing fridge layers naturally divided a bedroom, a dining room and drinking space, the fridge door panel was laid down to become a stair, and a glass was added as roof.

The recycling act was posted on the designers’ Weibo and instantly attracted a lot of attention. Some viewers commented the dog was lucky and the recycled shelter was full of love, some believed that the wild cats nearby would be jealous, while others promoted it as a good reuse solution in shrinking living space. The design studio also claimed online that they will consider a convenient door for the dog house soon, so as to keep Chuichui warm in winter.

The design studio y-town has a history of recycling, reusing and redesigning old objects such as e-waste, outdoor poster and clothing. As early as 2008, the design team was lead by Jamy Yang to recycle 12 refrigerators into functional furniture pieces. The project is now showed in national tour exhibition.
