Forget oil on canvas or water colour on paper. Dolce&Gabbana’s Smeg Fab 28 refrigerator is a functional art piece we all want in our homes.
Smeg’s ’50s retro-inspired fridges have been a kitchen must-have for many design-conscious folks. Add a fabulously bold touch from fashion house Dolce&Gabbana and you have a functional art piece we all want in our homes.
In 2015, the two brands which proudly acclaim their “Made in Italy” standards, revealed their first Fab 28 refrigerator collab at the Expo 2015 in Milan. This year, these special edition refrigerators — there are only 100 — will be showcased during Salone del Mobile Milano 2016, from 12 to 17 April.
Each surface of the fridges has a different collage, much like a 3D mural. The designs are a nod to Sicilian artists, featuring lemons, cart wheels, medieval knights, battle scenes and other elements that are important to the aesthetic of designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana — which of course includes floral motifs.
