Front of house (FOH) refrigeration is not just about turning up to a venue with a bog-standard unit to plug in.
Nowadays, venues expect a bespoke appliance which will reflect their branding and enhance the general ambiance, something which dealers have to take account of when drawing up specifications.
One refrigeration manufacturer which has built its reputation on such installations is Iglu Cold Systems. The Italian-based company offers the Mirabilia Bespoke package, creating custom-made FOH refrigeration displays.
“We can manufacture any kind of custom wine and food displays (sashimi, meat, pastry, chocolate, cheese etc), but also those for cigars, furs or flowers,” detailed Iglu’s CEO, Giacomo Ruzza.
“We are confident that we can satisfy the most demanding and special customers and needs, and can fulfill any specific measurement, conditions or spaces.
“There is virtually no shape, size or finish, material or colour that Iglu cannot reach, to transform interior designers’ and consultants’ requirements and concepts into ‘wow’ reality. We can even assist you with the design and installation, if required.”
The firm added the Mirabilia System product range to its portfolio towards the end of last year, which comprises 10 types of refrigeration displays for FOH: wine, vodka, cheese, meat, chocolate, pastry, cakes, ice-cream, sashimi, bottles, as well as general food (GN counters).
These models are aimed at covering FOH needs at a more affordable price. They are available in standard sizes but can still be personalised in any RAL colour or textures such as carbon, wood, leather or textile to achieve a custom finish and feel.
