Italian appliance brand Smeg has given its FAB28 fridge two special edition makeovers.
The FAB28RDBB is now available as a fully functioning blackboard. Having considered today’s busy lifestyles, and the tradition of leaving notes on the fridge door, Smeg aims to streamline the process with its latest customisable creation.
A real blackboard surface is used on the exterior of the fridge so family and friends can write messages on it with chalk. The surface is easy to wipe clean. The fridge itself features a 256 litre gross capacity, with an AA energy rating, automatic defrost, three adjustable glass shelves, fruit and vegetable container, chrome wine rack and internal ice box. It is priced at £1,499.
The other makeover is inspired by Dutch artist Piet Mondrian. This limited edition FAB28RDMC fridge is designed in the style of one of the painter’s most popular pieces: ‘Large Red Plane, Yellow, Black, Gray and Blue’.
Mondrian became famous in the early twentieth century for his abstract paintings using a limited colour palette and black lines of varying thickness which complements the rectangular shape and clean lines of Smeg’s fridge.

The makeovers are the latest in a line of limited edition designs for the appliance. Previous editions of Smeg’s FAB28 fridge have included denim and black velvet wraps, as well as collaborations with fashion designer Paul Smith and Champagne house Veuve Clicquot.
