Refrigerator of Art from Dolce&Gabbana and Smeg
Dolce&Gabbana and Smeg have teamed up once again, this time to design a number of special edition FAB28 refrigerator’s, transforming them into unmistakable works of art. The companies belong to two very different creative sectors but are united by strong values and a tradition for “Made in Italy” excellence. These values are rooted from growing up in Italian family life and the local area, and have instilled a deep respect for Italian tradition. Both companies are known for their creativity and this trait has allowed them to skilfully bridge eras of design as well as combine specialties in fashion, design, craftsmanship and manufacturing.
The result of this partnership is the special FAB28 Smeg refrigerator with unique Dolce&Gabbana styling. Each refrigerator features images hand painted by Sicilian artists. These include lemons, the trinacria symbol, cart wheels, medieval knights and battle scenes, all distinctive elements of poetic marionette theatre and Sicilian Cart. The primary images developed for each product are further embellished with classic floral motifs.
100 exclusive refrigerators have been produced with a meticulous eye for detail and innovation. Each is a one-of-a-kind which combines the quality and technology of Smeg with the unmistakable creativity and artisan workmanship expected from Dolce&Gabbana.
Two major creative brands from the worlds of high fashion and appliance design meet and merge, creating 100 unique and captivating refrigerators which artistically uncover beautiful stories from the heart of Italy.
Sicilian painters, highly skilled in complex decorative arts and “treasures of the past”, have turned Smeg refrigerators into unique interpretations of Sicilian folklore. Their work is the result of passion, profound creativity and a sense of belonging to their land.
