THE SEAL OF EXCELLENCE
For 70 years, Smeg has worked tirelessly to combine technology with style, creating appliances that offer award-winning design and functionality. Smeg’s multiple awards across all product categories is testament to this excellence.
Good Design Award
An internationally recognisable 2016 GOOD DESIGN® award – with a 68 year heritage and an international jury that includes architects, designers and creative directors, GOOD DESIGN® has maintained its importance and relevance with criteria focusing on aesthetics, functionality, ecological compatibility and symbolic and emotional contents.
Specifically, the Smeg appliances that earned the company this prestigious award were the 45cm wine cooler, the sommelier drawer, the 60cm oven, the blade flame gas cooktop with artistic grids and the 90cm combi cooktop, all from the new Dolce Stil Novo range, presented for the first time at the 2016 Salone del Mobile. These ground-breaking products were commended for their refined aesthetic and extraordinary technological innovation in the field of home appliances.
iF Design Award
The hallmark of outstanding quality and excellence – with 5,500 entries from 59 countries, Dolce Stil Novo received a coveted iF DESIGN AWARD 2017. Known for bridging the gap between design and industry, an iF DESIGN AWARD denotes quality, trust and excellence, and has been administered by one of the oldest and truly independent design institutions in the world for 65 years. Smeg is thrilled to announce that the new 45cm Dolce Stil Novo wine coolers has received an iF Design Award 2017.
Red Dot Award
A measure of international design quality and capability, Smeg was a deserved winner of a Red Dot Award 2017, a huge achievement that has been repeated for the third consecutive year. This year, it was the turn of the stunning Dolce Stil Novo wine cooler.
The origins of the Red Dot Awards date back to 1955 and its insignia, the Red Dot, is recognised internationally as one of the most sought-after quality marks for good design.
