More than products, creations
Smeg is well known for its collaborations with important and influential brands involved in high-fashion, art and design, together creating truly individual design-forward appliances.
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.
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.
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.
SMEG500 is something much more than ‘just a fridge’. It’s something which catches the eye, tricks it, and reinvents. An extraordinary refrigerator for the homes of avid collectors, or a fashionable lounge bar perfect for serving drinks.
Combine and reinterpret. Using objects from the past and traditional ideas and stitching them together with style and refinement. These are the actions that have inspired the two Italian brands to produce not just objects, but items that have their own story to tell. This is how the first fridge to be entirely covered in denim came into being. Not just any fridge, not the usual type of jeans.
