HAMBURG, Germany, Dec. 1 (UPI) -- A refrigerator designed by German artist Christian Awe is being offered for sale at Hamburg's Alsterhaus department store for almost $87,000.

The "PRO 48" fridge, made by Sub-Zero and Wolf, usually costs $36,674, but for one with Awe's "Cool as Ice" paintings adorning it, customers will have to pay $86,931, The Local.de reported.

Only 10 of the uniquely decorated fridges will be made.

Awe told the Morgenpost newspaper that painting the stainless steal products has been a challenge.

"With the finish the stainless steel has, neither paint nor dirt will stay on there. It took weeks just to prepare the fridge to start work," Awe said.
