SMEG was founded in 1948 by Vittorio Bertazzoni in Northern Italy. Today, it still remains a family business run by the third generation of Bertazzoni. The name is an acronym for “Smalterie Metallurgiche Emiliane Guastalla” that translates to “Guastalla Emilia Enamel Works.”
SMEG’s retro style enameled refrigerators come in both pastel and vibrant colors and can stand alone as any other design piece. Limited editions of these iconic products pop up every now and then and are pretty cool!
