Smeg has teamed up with designer Marc Newson to create its new range of kitchen appliances.
March 17th, 2011
Marc Newson is widely regarded as one of the most accomplished and influential designers of his generation.
Newson’s new range for Smeg consists of electric pyrolytic ovens, gas hobs and induction cooktops, all in Newson’s unmistakeable style – smooth lines, distinctive colours and intuitive functionality.
The FP610 multifunction oven has 8 cooking functions, including a rotisserie, 2 pyrolytic self-cleaning functions, an extra large oven capacity of 79 litres and a Thermoseal non-vented cooking system allowing a perfectly controlled cooking cavity.
It’s all operated by a user-friendly large touch control panel. What’s more, all ovens in this range carry impressive energy consumption credentials, having exceeded the highest Class A European energy rating.
The Newson 75cm gas cooktops feature 5 burners with highly efficient vertical flame technology, all in a simple, striking layout.
Completing the Newson design series for Smeg is a range of 7 induction cooktops in black frameless glass, available in 30, 60, 70 and 90 cm.
Features include 15 temperature settings for each zone, automatic pan recognition, power boost, child safety lock, safety cut-out and 99-minute timer. A stop-in-temp setting allows temperature to be held and maintained at a chosen level.
The Marc Newson collection for Smeg will be launched at designEx in April.
