Smeg has seen significant growth in its compact appliances that are the standard 600mm wide but just 450mm high, designed to be installed in a bank either at the ‘midway point’ (chest or eye level) or under-bench. The range comprises: convection oven with microwave [$3290]; combi steam/convection oven [$4490]; dedicated steam oven [$3290]; microwave oven with grill function [$2790]; and a built-in coffee machine [$4290]. These appliances are offered in two distinct design aesthetics: the Classic all stainless steel (in the kitchen pictured); and the contemporary Linear in stainless steel and glass. Each appliance, be it Classic or Linear, has matching aesthetics to provide that homogeneous look to a kitchen.
The owners of the kitchen pictured, designed by Kim Duffin of Sublime Architectural Interiors, wanted to take full advantage of natural light and surrounding rural views. While the midpoint bank of appliances satisfied the ergonomics, ventilation posed a different hurdle. A solution was found in the twin Smeg cylindrical stainless steel rangehoods [$2490 each], 370mm in diameter and moving up to 620m3 of air/hour.
