Who doesn’t remember Charlie Brown’s ingenious Beagle, Snoopy? Well, it turns out that the comic strip that accompanied dozens of generations is reaching its 70th anniversary in 2023, and to celebrate it SMEG has created a mini refrigerator to be part of its iconic retro FAB10 series.
So, the cute little dog that is part of pop culture can now be part of the decoration of rooms and entertainment centers through a very functional limited edition designer appliance.
The FAB10 from the Peanuts collection is a 50’s style mini refrigerator, whose design seeks to remember the original cartoon that many enjoyed in the pages of Sunday newspapers. As a result, SMEG has kept its white background to emulate the paper that Charles Schulz used in his comic strip and features Snoopy with his buddy Woodstock.
This detail not only pays tribute to Schulz’s creative process but also highlights the wholesome and timeless nature of a character like Snoopy and “The Peanuts” comic strip that captivated post-World War II America and the entire world with its motivational messages.
SMEG: technology, design, tradition, and culture
SMEG’s FAB10 Peanuts is not the only collaboration the Italian company has had with another brand. SMEG has partnered with Disney to celebrate Mickey Mouse’s 90th anniversary, and with the famous Veuve Clicquot winery for its 250th anniversary just to mention two examples.
These SMEG collaborations are a reflection of how important artistic and cultural references are for the company to contribute to the creation of a world full of common spaces.
This small SMEG FAB10 refrigerator is the perfect combination of functionality and style. Its compact size makes it an ideal addition to bedrooms, entertainment spaces, and even offices. Its timeless design and the presence of the beloved Snoopy character make this refrigerator not just an appliance, but a conversation piece with plenty of personality.
Only 70 units of the Peanuts collection will be produced, one for each year of the anniversary, and they will be numbered and identified by a silver plaque. So, you must hurry up because collectors will be the first to get their hands on a piece like this which will certainly be the topic of conversation in any room where it is placed at.
