Smeg and Dolce&Gabbana unite their artistic sensibilities in a journey to discover the colours and beauty of Sicily for an authentically ‘Made in Italy’ project under the shared standard of creativity, art, and design.
When design and fashion meet in an unconventional project it can only result in a bold, unexpected and visionary creativity, which continues over time to spark new stimuli and interactions between both worlds.
Dolce&Gabbana and Smeg have teamed up for the design of a special edition of the FAB28 refrigerator, transforming it into a work of art. The result of this partnership are 100 exclusive hand painted refrigerators where each refrigerator features unique images by Sicilian artists: lemons, the trinacria symbol, cart wheels, medieval knights and battle scenes – all distinctive elements of the aesthetic of Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana.
The small appliances collection produced by Smeg with an unmistakable Dolce&Gabbana touch are symbols of an aesthetic inextricably associated with Sicily, home to the souls of Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, and more generally with Italy and its cuisine of which Smeg has always been an interpreter of excellence. Toasters, citrus juicer, coffee machines, kettle, blenders, stand mixers and slow juicers all decorated with gold lemons, citrus fruits and bright red cherries are just some of the typical Sicilian decorations framed in triangular motifs
Divina Cucina is a tribute to Italy’s roots, its traditions and popular festivals in the form of a new freestanding kitchen set and cooker hood with a coordinated FAB28 fridge, rendered unique by bold colours and narrative intensity. The collection is presented in two variants: the first characterised by representations inspired by the Sicilian puppet theatre and the traditional hand-painted cart, where the dominant tones are fiery red and orange, the second by a majolica print in shades of blue and white.
