Welcome to the Smeg Art online auction. This is your chance to bid for one of four Smeg FAB28 retro refrigerators, which have all had a stunning makeover by four New Zealand designers. These highly functional artworks are the winning entries in the recent Smeg Art Design Competition, held in conjunction with the Auckland and Waikato home shows.

The refrigerators are being auctioned to raise funds for the children’s charity Hands Across the Water. This charity was set up following the devastating Boxing Day tsunami to give a helping hand to at-risk Thai children and their communities. All the money donated to Hands Across the Water goes directly to the projects and communities – no funds are spent on administration or marketing.

Tactile cedar blocks encase the Smeg FAB28 refrigerator that won the Judges Award in the Smeg Art Design Competition. Winning designer Mark Frazerhurst says he deliberately contrasted the industrial with the rustic, while retaining the essence of the retro FAB28 and its iconic curves. The judges praised both the design concept and the execution of The Stack, noting the sanded, bevelled edges of the blocks and the invisible fixing that enhance the finished product.

All fridges in the Smeg Art collection are up for auction, including Stack, Gumballs, Hive, and 50s retro. To view these, please visit our other listings.
