Smeg Down Under
Remember how, two weeks ago, we suggested a really alternative tourism option, taking in the new Smeg showrooms dotted around the world? Well, if you've already been to Cape Town, and Zagreb is too close for your holiday requirements, today we can offer you a brand new destination on the other side of the world right on the Indian Ocean, in the Perth metropolitan area, Western Australia. Imagine an airy post-industrial space of over 530 square metres, made of polished concrete and finished with the finest Australian wood furnishings.
Now fill it up with all the Smeg appliances which come to mind: not just the iconic 50s Style appliances, from FAB fridges to dishwashers, but also the aesthetic Linea and Classic lines, hobs, products for hotels and restaurants ... Practically a museum of refined Made in Italy design. And you don't even have to pay entrance!
An interesting feature is that the new showroom also offers a functional kitchen, which will host weekly demonstrations and retail programmes, and can accommodate up to twelve guests. Have you ever heard of that curious phenomenon which makes water drain the other way in Australia? This brand new kitchen could be just the place to finally see it for yourselves!
