SMEG was founded in 1948 in the northern Italian town of Guastalla. Guastalla is located in the province of Reggio Emilia, which is known worldwide as the gourmet region of Italy. Like no other part of Italy, it stands for good food and the famous Italian way of life. For more than 70 years now, SMEG has made it its mission to respond to the demands of contemporary living and create household appliances that go beyond their practical utility to become design icons.
Vision, intuition, international presence: the SMEG Group is characterized by a corporate culture that pays the utmost attention to quality, technical detail, resource consumption and energy efficiency. Nationally and internationally, the Group is thus considered a thought leader in excellence «Made in Italy».
Smeg's design department works closely and intensively with architects and designers in its style-making: including Guido Canali, Mario Bellini, Studio Piano Design, Marc Newson, Giancarlo Candeago, Matteo Bazzicalupo and Raffaella Mangiarotti (deepdesign)
The mix of technology and design, thought out down to the last detail, strongly prägests the Smeg image and allows the appliances to become true style icons over time.
