What We Like: our selection of hi-tech objects

Smart, technological, with a distinctive design. The newest kitchen and electronic products combine innovation and aesthetics to make everyday life more efficient and connected.

Our products selection in the summer issue of ICON DESIGN (also available here in a digital version) ranges from the latest devices - by Samsung for telephony sistems; by LG, Sonos and Bang & Olufsen for audio and video playback, among others - to the small but necessary appliances by Smeg, Ariete and KitchenAid in vintage colours and the real must-haves for those who want chef results: combined and multifunctional ovens, customizable refrigerators, silent induction hobs with integrated hood and touch controls that automatically adjust the suction power according to the type of cooking (Bora) and that guarantee maximum versatility in the use of pots of different sizes (Falmec).

Everything followed by a selection of new upholstery, fabrics and table accessories, from Bitossi Home to Christian Fischbacher. Colorful.
