Lux Island Stove Hood
Winner - Bronze
Designer: Luke Siow - Zephyr President
Design Type: Kitchen Ventilation Hood
Company / Organization / School: Zephyr Ventilation
Zephyr Ventilation, the industry leader in ventilation hood design, innovation and technology, today unveiled the newest product to its Arc Collection: Lux Island. Ideal for homeowners that want an unobtrusive view of the kitchen, Lux features an integrated design that discreetly mounts into the ceiling above the island cooktop. Lux attracts a new market segment that gravitates toward an open kitchen layout and homeowners that entertain often around built-in islands yet do not want a traditional “island” hood. The “out of sight, out of mind” Lux won’t block sightlines in the kitchen, nor does it compromise on power or performance. Lux is equipped with Perimeter Aspiration, a technique that moves airflow away from the central area of the hood and evenly distributes it through narrow openings around the perimeter of the hood. This ventilation method increases air velocity and improves the capture of cooking contaminates. Perimeter Aspiration ensures the hood will keep the kitchen free of smoke and debris and can handle the most powerful cooking jobs over European- or professional-style ranges.
