As a highly visible element and integral part of your kitchen, your appliance selection should reflect and complement the kitchen's overall design and tone.

Increasingly aware of the importance of this concept, appliance manufacturers are joining forces with well-known European architects and designers to create appliances that embody the latest in both styling and technology.

One such example is Smeg's partnership with Italian architect Renzo Piano. Since its release in Europe, the new Smeg Piano Design Series has become the brand's best-selling appliance range.

With its distinctive yet subdued styling, the Piano Series comprises ovens, hobs, rangehoods and dishwashers, all featuring the same smooth, uncluttered lines. The range is based on the principal of eliminating the unnecessary to reduce each appliance to its purest form.

This idea is also reflected in the construction of the Piano Series. Using 18/10 stainless steel pressed into shape as a single sheet eliminates joints and joins so there are no gaps or difficult corners to clean. This method also means there are no visible connections or screws.

The minimalist styling sits well with the clean-lined kitchen designs coming out of Italy. As a result, leading companies such as Febal, Scavolini and Rossana have been incorporating the Piano series into their latest designs.

In the Ernestomeda kitchen featured on these pages, Smeg appliances enhance the sleek, horizontal lines, becoming a cohesive part of the design, rather than standing out as distinct elements.
