A collaboration between two Italian design leaders started with the humble fridge re-imagined as a piece of art when internationally renowned Italian fashion designers Dolce & Gabbana transformed the iconic Smeg FAB28 fridge into ‘Frigorifero d’Arte’.
Now comes the second ‘Made in Italy’ collection featuring a selection of Smeg’s small domestic appliances, including kettles, toasters and juicers. The collection is rich with Dolce & Gabanna’s signature bright primary colours and motifs like flowers, geometric designs, and fruit, even a cherub or two. Each item in the ‘Sicily is my Love’ collection – which also comprises blenders, coffee machines and stand mixers – has been expertly decorated with Dolce & Gabanna’s quintessential Sicilian folkloric motifs inspired by the coasts and landscapes of southern Italy and Mount Etna. Gold lemons and other citrus fruits, prickly pears and bold, bright cherries, surrounded by ornamental friezes and decorative leaf motifs are framed in traditional triangular decorations known as ‘crocchi’.
And you thought you wanted an uncluttered, pure white space!
