Dolce&Gabbana and Smeg celebrate Italian heritage in this cool collaboration.
Debuted in Milan at Salone del Mobile 2016 were the first of 100 limited-edition Smeg artistic fridges, each one meticulously hand-painted by renowned artists and transformed into works of art – destined for today’s most exclusive spaces.
Each artistic fridge is individually themed and embellished with a detailed mix of hand-painted motifs inspired by Sicilian tradition.
Sketching and more than 240 hours of painting went into the creation of these artworks. They were treated with a glaze to ensure their preservation.
With free creative reign, the artists, from different regions in Sicily, depicted visually spectacular stories unique to their region using acrylics and oil as primary mediums.
The intense blues and greens, pastel undertones and striking use of black represent the Sicilian sun, sea and hills.
Browse the gallery above to view a selection of the colourful designs. Each fridge retails at around €30 000 (excluding insurance and freight costs).
