Dolce&Gabbana teamed up with SMEG for a truly-unique and special collaboration: the design of a series of one-of-a-kind special edition FAB28 refrigerators, transforming these already-iconic products into literal works of art! Belonging to two different industries, but united by their strong Italian values and tradition of “Made in Italy”-excellence, and background of family-ownership and creativity, the two companies have combined their unique specialties and sensibilities.
The result is the Frigorifero d’Arte, the Refrigerator of Art, a limited edition series of FAB28 refrigerators each with unique Dolce&Gabbana styling. No two are alike, but each feature images hand-painted by Sicilian artists, with each refrigerator a unique piece by a specific artist. Lemons, the trinacria, cart wheels, medieval knights, battle scenes, Sicilian landscapes, all elements of Sicilian puppet theater and famed carretto Siciliano, the Sicilian cart, as well as being important elements of the personal design aesthetic of Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana themselves. Embellished with floral motifs, all of these exclusive refrigerators are the product of a meticulous eye for detail, and combine SMEG’s manufacturing quality and engineering know-how with Dolce&Gabbana’s creativity and masterful artisan worksmanship.
