Not only does Smeg have a unique profile in terms of domestic appliances, it is also renowned in professional business sectors. The Food service and Instruments divisions specialise in the area of large-scale restaurant/catering appliances and electro-medical instruments respectively. Each Smeg appliance is created with strong attention to product detail, design and materials used. Smeg appliances take centre stage in the heart of the home, offering that true statement of expression and individuality. The kitchen is the place in which all elements of design meet. As a result, technolological development is a key consideration in evaluating the needs, functions, aesthetics and environmental features related to all Smeg appliances. Of course, aesthetic reasons aside, Smeg's identity is an expression of its actual Italian origins and the fact that the company is passionate about what it does. Smeg aims to identify and reflect the defining characteristics of Italian design, such as inventive elegance, originality and product quality.
