We all know what Italian craftsmen and artisans can do when they work together. So, no wonder why Frigorifero d’Arte (basically translated as “art refrigerator”) which is result of collaboration between Dolce&Gabbana and Smeg caused so much interest.
The companies belong to two very different creative sectors but are united by strong values and a tradition for “Made in Italy” excellence and they introduced their special FAB28 Smeg refrigerator with unique Dolce&Gabbana styling at last year’s Salone Internazionale de Mobile in Milan.
Each refrigerator features images by Sicilian artists: lemons, the trinacria symbol, cart wheels, medieval knights and battle scenes – all distinctive elements of the poetic marionette theater and the Sicilian Cart as well as important aspects of the aesthetic of Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana. The themes developed for each product are embellished with classic floral motifs.
100 exclusive refrigerators have been produced with a meticulous eye for detail and innovation.
And while Harrods in London is currently enjoying a major pop-up with a taste of Italy and a full-on display of the fridges as well as other D & G products, at least we can say that eight models finally are available in U.S, exclusively at Neiman Marcus.
If the price of $34,000 for a refrigerator is too much for you, you can direct your attention to a charming group of small appliances such as a toaster, kettle, stand mixer, citrus juicer, blender, espresso maker, and slow juicer also impressively decorated.
