Usually when a mouse has been spotted near the fridge it’s not a good thing. But in this case, it’s nothing to worry about. Following on from recent collabs with Dolce&Gabbana, Mini and Veuve Cliquot, Italian appliance brand Smeg has teamed up with Disney to create a limited edition commemorative fridge.
Launched to celebrate Smeg’s two landmark anniversaries – its 70th anniversary as a company and the first birthday of its flagship London store – the FAB28 fridge is brought to life by an original drawing featuring Disney’s most iconic character, Mickey Mouse, who is also celebrating his 90th anniversary this year. Each of the fridges include an image of Mickey playfully reaching for the fridge’s handle.
To mark the occasion, 90 fridges will be produced – one for each year since Mickey’s debut back in 1928 making this a true collector’s item. Each fridge is decorated with a limited edition silver plaque signifying its unique number.
Aesthetically speaking, the FAB28 is Smeg’s most widely recognised, 50s-inspired design. The interior benefits from adjustable glass shelves, chrome shelving supports, metal wine racks, LED strip lights, an ice compartment and a Life Plus drawer, which keeps fruit and veg fresher for longer. Each FAB28 provides a total gross capacity of 281L and offers an A+++ energy rating.
In addition, Smeg recently upgraded all of its FAB fridges to include a metal back. The FAB28RDMM3 will be available exclusively from Smeg’s flagship store at 14 Regent Street St James’s for £1,699.
