Extraordinary Extraction: Falmec’s Light Kitchen Hood
It’s been quite a year for Falmec’s surprisingly slim Light kitchen hood. After winning Archiproduct’s Design Award in the kitchen category, the auspicious appliance just took home the 2022 German Design Award for Excellent Kitchen Product Design.
One look at Light demonstrates its aesthetic innovation: the profile is pencil-thin for a hood; it’s flanked by twin panels in sumptuous black satin glass; and the smoked-glass central element nicely complements the side panels, as well as being quite a show-stopper in its own right.
Light’s look is certainly part of the reason for the accumulation of awards, but it’s certainly not the whole story. This is because Light’s look follows the old saw about form following function: the compact silhouette is achieved via the technological coup of what’s inside.
As the manufacturer puts it, “Falmec’s new Multi-Air technology allows the suction power to be distributed in several small motors, rather than concentrated in just one as is usual, thus guaranteeing the same suction efficiency but within an extremely reduced volume.”
Light’s motor are also brushless, meaning your fancy new kitchen hood won’t sound like a jet liner. Other features include a combined Carbon.Zeo filter, electronic control with remote, and a seamlessly integrated dual LED strip light.
