Inspired by nature in all its glorious forms, Smeg’s new Dolce Stil Novo range brings wild joy back into home cooking.

First launched at Eurocucina in 2016, Smeg’s Dolce Stil Novo line presents design and style innovations for a range of products that becomes the focal point in kitchen everywhere. Then as now, the Dolce Stil Novo line is a perfect juxtaposition of form and function. 

The range of products comprises combination ovens (combi-steam and combi-microwave), warming drawers and hobs, as well as coffee machines. 

Though not a splash of green in sight, Smeg has reveled in the chance to take inspiration from the natural world with its new Dolce Stil Novo collection, seeking new and stylish ways to bring the outside in.

From copper trim inspired by the sunset and flora- and fauna-themed titanium pan stands to a sommelier drawer hand crafted from Slovenian oak, the entire selection is designed to bring the serenity of nature into the home.

The Dolce Stil Novo introduces a range of Good Design and Red Dot award winning 90cm extra wide ovens with a 100L gross capacity designed ideal for large households. Easily installed under a bench or in tall cabinetry, the contemporary cookers feature a large LCD color touch display offset by a striking Eclipse glass door. 

Fifty automatic programs and ten customizable recipes ensure delicious home-cooked meals are quick and simple to prepare. And clean-up is a breeze with the super-efficient pyrolytic self-cleaning system.

Meanwhile, the 60cm ovens come with an exciting new feature: a retractable handle. When the oven is in use, the handle automatically extends. It stays open until cooking has finished and the oven has cooled.

The elegant Dolce Stil Novo collection also caters to kitchen spaces with low ceilings or minimal wall space, or those seeking a clutter-free aesthetic, with its selection of 90cm downdraft hoods. Efficient, with an A energy rating, and virtually silent due to their under-worktop installation, features include low energy consumption LED strip lighting, a powerful motor, permiter extraction, and four speeds. When cooking is finished, the hood slides discreetly back into the bench at the touch of a button.

Whether you are a seasoned chef or just beginning to explore your culinary potential, when choosing Smeg, you are guaranteed an abundance of inspiration in the kitchen.
