Coco Republic and Smeg Collaborate

Italy, San Francisco and beyond – the Coco Republic and Smeg space at Brisbane Indesign embodies international luxe.

Coco Republic and Smeg Collaborate


May 14th, 2012

Coco Republic and Smeg are teaming up for Brisbane Indesign for a showcase of their latest products, a unique installation and typical Italian hospitality.

Smeg’s Newson, Classic and Linear collections will be on display, letting visitors experience firsthand the beauty, timelessness and innovation that have made Smeg a household name.


Driven by a passion for art and design, Smeg collaborates with renowned architects and designers – including Guido Canali, Renzo Piano and Australia’s own Marc Newson – to create intuitive products that are as beautiful to look at as they are easy to use.

Smeg is also previewing the Alfa 150 stone oven, featuring 40 cooking programs and a chamber made entirely from refractory stone, designed for intensive prolonged use and minimum energy consumption.

Coco Republic are bringing Oly, California’s most progressive furniture and homeware brand, to Brisbane for the very first time at Brisbane Indesign.


Oly’s new collections features stand-out furniture and unique homeware designs that will make any interior space extraordinary.


Also on display will be Coco Republic favourite, the Muriel Chandelier – an intricate, whimsical fixture of clear bubble-like balls – as well as the new Jonathan nesting table and the mirrored Morgan Queen Bed.

As well as a host of new products, the Coco Republic showroom will in itself be a major drawcard of the event.

Smeg and Coco Republic have teamed up with HASSELL to transform the space into a concept gallery as part of The Project. The result is an immersive environment combining the traditional and contemporary and promising to take visitors on an exciting journey through the Oly and Smeg collections.


Once you’ve made your tour of the showroom and checked out all the new products, stop by the Smeg Coco Republic Café for coffee and Italian pastries from 9am to 12pm, followed by antipasto and Prosecco until 4pm. From 4-6pm the Aperol Aperitivo Bar will be kicking off your evening in traditional Italian style, serving up aperitivo food and drinks as your day winds to an end.

Contact the showroom direct to arrange a private viewing for Friday 25 May, or drop in on Saturday 26 May from 9am and experience world-class design in an environment of fun hospitality.
