For homeowners who cook frequently, the kitchen is a sacred part of the home. After all, it is where kitchen appliances are housed, which are essential in helping us prepare delicious meals for our loved ones. But while traditional kitchen appliances usually favour function over form, home appliance manufacturer Smeg aims to meld the two together.
To achieve this, the Italian brand has a series of four aesthetic lines, of which the Classic and Linea range of built-in products – ranging from ovens, hoods as well as gas and induction hobs – perfectly encapsulates Smeg’s design ethos of “technology with style”. Founded in Italy in 1948, the brand is known for producing uniquely designed appliances that are aesthetically pleasing, ergonomic and functional. Smeg, originally an acronym for Smalterie Metallurgiche Emiliane Guastalla indicating its initial activities in enamel work and metallurgy, is today one of the most recognised kitchen appliances manufacturers in the world. The company has reached its third generation of entrepreneurs and represents an international group with direct subsidiaries and distributors in all five continents. As the first-ever aesthetic line developed, the Classic collection was a collaboration between Smeg and Italian architect Guido Canali. Distinctive for the way the stainless steel finishes are paired with stylistic rigour, the unique shapes of the control knobs and oven handles reflect elements of industrial design. But at its core, the clean and streamlined design transform the range into timeless and contemporary pieces, making it a perfect fit for all homes, no matter the design theme.
Meanwhile, the Linea range is known for its minimalist style and space-optimised design, making it the perfect option for small homes. In addition to this, the ergonomic range also boasts standout features in the form of the oven handles and the touch controls. Made from a combination of silver glass and steel, the result is a stunning series of products that will make a real style statement in your cooking space.
Besides the striking design, Smeg has also put a lot of thought into the functionality of its products, resulting in appliances that boast top performance and cutting-edge technology. For example, the Linea range features maxi-capacity electric ovens that offer energy savings of up to 20 per cent compared to regular Class A-rated appliances, as well as ultra-rapid and high-performance hob burners whose near-vertical flames guarantee optimum cooking every time.
Whether you’re a budding masterchef or simply a food enthusiast, you’ll now be able to transform your kitchen into a fully-equipped backdrop with Smeg’s line of kitchen appliances for those precious moments to be enjoyed with your friends and family.
