Smeg appliances – Marc Newson Collection

Designed by Australian born and internationally renowned Marc Newson, the stunning collection of Smeg appliances represents the first time Mr. Newson ventured into home appliance territory. We certainly hope he will keep going. The striking Collection comprises of induction and gas hobs, and built-in ovens finished in stunning black, yellow, green, blue, white and silver colours. The Collection was shown at EuroCucina 2008 Kitchen Appliance and Design Show in Milan where was an instant hit. Until the end of September they are available exclusively at John Lewis and, hopefully, elsewhere afterwards.
