To fund her first solo exhibition, South African film producer and photographer, Filipa Domingues has collaborated with Smeg to produce a collection of 4 limited-edition ‘CheckMyPlants’ retro refrigerators.
The unique pieces feature Domingues’s visually spectacular stills of iconic South African plants with Smeg’s black retro fridge as the canvas to perfectly emulate her signature style photography. The result is nothing short of spectacular.
“Smeg has always had deep passion and appreciation for the arts and the opportunity to play a part in the creative expression of such a talented South African photographer is an absolute honor.” – Steve Brookes, Managing Director of Smeg South Africa.
One of these new Smeg refrigerators would look amazing with Fenix-clad cabinetry. Being able to offer my clients Fenix black cabinetry is ideal for kitchens where fingerprints are often a great concern. Contact me to learn more about this soft-touch, fingerprint-minimizing option for your home.
