A very prestigious award
NEXT oven won the GOOD DESIGN 2017 award.
A few days ago our NEXT oven won the GOOD DESIGN 2017 award assigned every year by the Chicago Athenaeum, Museum of Architecture and Design in collaboration with The European Centre for Architecture, Art, Design and Urban Studies. This is a highly prestigious international award for industrial innovation in projects and products worldwide. Created in Chicago in 1950 by the architects Eero Saarinen, Charles and Ray Eames and Edgar Kaufmann, Jr, the Good Design Award rewards excellence in industrial design, and in its sixty-plus years of history it has been given to some of the world’s leading industrial manufacturing brands. In 2017, the authoritative panel of experts selected the winners from thousands of candidates from over 48 countries. The award constitutes an important acknowledgment of Smalvic’s manufacturing ability and validates its increasingly marked focus on design in the products it builds.
Annual Meeting 2017
It seems like it was yesterday, but two months have passed since our Annual Meeting.
It seems like it was yesterday, but two months have passed since our Annual Meeting, which took place this year at Villa Godi Piovene in Sarmego di Grumolo delle Abbadesse (Vicenza). It was an opportunity to meet and intensively exchange ideas; we talked about what Made in Italy means to us, how to build a value-added chain, our domestic market that is finally picking up again, and international developments. Of particular interest was a roundtable coordinated by Raffaella Razzano, director of Ambiente Cucina, with the participation of Paola Gasparini, Alessandro Iegiani, Simone Buzzacchera, Giovanni Kalogerakis, Roberto Pizzutto, Lia Piovan, Francesca Tomasi and the journalist from Corriere Imprese Fiorella Girardo. Many new products were exhibited at the Villa: including the 90 cm version of the NEXT multifunctional oven, the Linea Gres coloured induction ranges, the Flat oven in its new dove-grey colour, the IN LINEAR perfect alignment system, the 60 cm Quadro pyrolitic oven, and the fine porcelain oven pans that can snap-fit into the oven grid. But, more than that, we met to spend some time together and discuss our work, made of commitment, sweat, but also lots of passion.
Taste has no boundaries
The collaboration continues between Smalvic and ‘Taste&More magazine’
The collaboration continues between Smalvic and ‘Taste&More magazine’, a digital magazine that presents in an original way the passion for good food, prepared well and often cooked with our ovens and hobs, immortalized in beautiful photographs. The bimonthly magazine, managed by a group of passionate food bloggers spread a bit throughout Italy, presents in every issue a series of seasonal recipes, described with great clarity and shot in photos of great effect. After the summer break, Taste&More will return in September; a heartfelt thanks to Tiziana Molti, Lara Bianchini, and Mary Pellegrino, who have chosen to use Smalvic kitchen appliances. You can also follow them on their blogs, respectively La barchetta di carta di zucchero (The sugar paper boat), L’ Ombelico di Venere (The navel of Venus), and Dafne’s corner.
International certifications for a smart company
Certifications of Smalvic's quality
A company with a strong international presence like ours knows well that exporting does not only consist in properly positioning the product in other markets: a smart factory must necessarily be oriented towards the future, supported by its technical and technological know-how. For appliances, you have to be prepared with the whole system of certifications that the markets require. You cannot go to the Persian Gulf countries without a certification like the G MARK, while in Australia and New Zealand you cannot sell gas products without the specific local certification, or in Saudi Arabia without the certification with the specific S.A.S.O. deviations. As for the electric and mixed electric/gas appliances, it is essential to have the CB scheme certification, that is, a certification scheme to be obtained following the specific deviations for the different countries of destination. And Smalvic has all of these strict certifications.
