‘Platinum’ cooker hood by Elica

Appearing for all the world like a simple ceiling light with a shade, this object’s primary use is in fact as a hi-tech cooker hood. The shade conceals a drum fitted with a set of grease traps that can be removed easily and cleaned in the dishwasher. Remarkably, the hood also works as a light, complete with remote control. Platinum uses the silver-bright texture of steel to enhance the rigour of its lines and the softness of its form. A shining glossy steel robe makes a powerful visual impact, with its strong, clean lines making it ideal for any number of different environments. by Elica
