Retro Refrigeration

FAB Refrigerators

The latest in technology with retro styling - there are lots of reasons to choose a sleek, stylish, retro-chic FAB refrigerator for your kitchen, and not just because they're so nice to look at

With its soft, curved lines and brilliant colors, the FAB retro-style line of refrigerators is the fridge that made SMEG a household name around the world.  It redefined the style and aesthetics of the central kitchen appliance, making it a, not just utilitarian, but furnishing element, with the potential to break the bounds of the kitchen: eclectic, non-conformist, and fundamentally eco-sustainable.  Style, color and, above all, technology are the stand-out features of the latest FABs with their cutting-edge solutions and fine detailing.

New Technology for Classic Style

The FAB line was recently redesigned with the latest in SMEG's technological innovations.  On the outside, little has changed, but inside, the FAB refrigerators contains a wealth of wonderful, new innovative features.

Reasons to Choose a FAB Refrigerator:

  1. Style and function
    New profile elements shape the glass main compartment shelves and door balcony shelves, with chrome finishing, not only on the outside, but in every detail.
  2. Zero energy loss
    The Multiflow system optimizes the distribution of cold and humidity to assure an even temperature throughout the main compartment, and vegetable drawers.
  3. Everything in its place
    A new 32°F compartment for fish and meat offers the perfect temperature for keeping foods fresh longer.
  4. Unbeatable practicality
    The non-freeze back panel prevents ice from forming.
  5. Everything on-hand
    LED devices illuminate both sides of the refrigerator to facilitate storage, without increasing energy consumption.
  6. Details that make the difference
    The door hinge is more compact, for a leaner, more-elegant overall look.
  7. Technology and color
    FABs are available in a large range of colors, and, sometimes, patterns.  Choose from British, Italian, or American flags with the FAB28, vibrant colors in all the FABs, and even a few extra-special editions, including the recent Sicily Is My Love collection from our collaboration with Dolce&Gabbana.
LED Lights

The new FAB interiors are lit by an LED strip which runs along the refrigerator walls.

Life Plus Drawer

A special zone with a temperature range of 28 to 37°F, ideal for keeping more-perishable foods such as meat and fish fresh for longer.

Elegant Chrome-Plated Trim

The edges of the new glass shelves and door "balconies" feature shiny, chrome-plated trims, which draw on retro designs.

Iconic Details

Rounded curves and chrome-plated details perfectly co-ordinate the interior and exterior of the refrigerators.
