Entry Description

‘Concetto Spaziale’ is the vertical hood by Elica characterized by unique design. Design that was born out of a very simple idea: combining a product whose lines are usually essential and rigorous with a special fabric, able to give it a touch of softness and dynamism .
The use of an innovative material in our vertical hoods, such as the Cristalplant, allows classical flat panels, usually made in glass or stainless steel, to become three-dimensional.
The elegance of this shape, designed in every single detail and thought out in every curve, follows and emphasizes the main function of the hood: the Cristalplant seems to be almost stretched over in the aspiration area, like a drape, so as if it would allow air to pass through it.
The hood is operated by a touch control on transparent elements, designed to ensure maximum.
