Freeze-frame on th­ese cool Smeg fridges

CityPress - - Opportunity index -

Fridge brand Smeg has always been the ul­ti­mate cool kitchen ac­ces­sory. Ba­si­cally, ev­ery­one wants to own a Smeg, but not ev­ery­one can af­ford one. Beer brand Grolsch re­cently teamed up with the brand and asked 13 lo­cal artists to cus­tomise their fridges.

A few of the artists re­ally em­braced the chal­lenge, cre­at­ing strong, unique pieces that com­ple­ment the ap­pli­ance. Like the strik­ing mono­chrome face by Joburg artist Lehl­o­gonolo Mashaba, and the un­set­tling im­age of an apartheid po­lice­man by Mpho Madi and Grace Rampa. The fridges are now up for grabs in a Grolsch com­pe­ti­tion. Now that’s cool. Check out the rest of the artists’ Smeg de­signs by down­load­ing Zap­par and scan­ning the thun­der­bolt icon pic­tured to the left. – Grethe Koen
