Smeg was founded in 1948 and is still a family-owned enterprise. Originally set up as a metal enameller in Guastalla, Reggio Emillia, Italy, the company spotted a gap in the market to manufacture appliances designed to improve and automate the kitchen more and more, post-war. The kitchen as the heart of any home, and its focal point has remained the underlying philosophy of the company ever since.
