Refrigeration sink puts the chill on your drink

Meneghini sink uses air- and water-based refrigeration.

Coming to the kitchen as what appears to be the first of its kind, this contraption keeps drinks cold when you're nowhere near the icebox.

The sink, designed by Meneghini, uses either air or water refrigeration to cool beverages and snacks. All you do is press a button, and a compressor that sits in the bottom of the sink pushes cold water or air through the perforated disk that sits underneath your refreshments.

The sink has specially designed metal fixtures that act as bottle rests and a center peg that can be used as a platform for a plate of fruit or cheese. If you'd prefer not to use refrigeration, it functions as a normal sink.
