The SMEG500 is something much more than ‘just a fridge’. It’s something which catches the eye, tricks it, and reinvents. An extraordinary refrigerator for the homes of avid collectors, or a fashionable lounge bar perfect for serving drinks. “I’m really happy that, we’re launching this product. It is the result of years of work, and it reawakens a historical collaboration between Smeg and Fiat, and not forgetting the creativity of Italia Independent – says Lapo Elkann – The Fiat 500 is an Italian icon that from now can even be found in another dimension, in bars and peoples living rooms all over the world”.
“Smeg and Fiat, together with Italia Independent, knew how to approach the challenge – comments Vittorio Bertazzoni, Smeg CEO – and for me, creating the SMEG500, was above all a matter of personal honour. I strongly believed in this project as it pays tribute to the memory of my grandfather. Furthermore, this partnership is witness to the amazing industrial competence of Made-in-Italy which gives life and body to creativity via one of its most symbolic objects”.
Reinventing looks, eliciting a smile, injecting the passion of creativity into the rigor of technology. It is the ability of art that allows you to see beyond appearances, beyond the limits. It is the ability of innovators who continually transform one thing into something else with ease and irreverence. The refrigerator cellar is A+ rated for energy efficiency, has a 100 litre capacity, and will be available in white, red and green finishes.
