Zephyr Om Range Hood
The Zephyr Om range hood, from the company’s Elica collection, is a sleek alternative to the clunky hoods of yesteryear. It is a flat square of reverse-silk-screened glass, which hangs against the wall above the cook top. A circle is embedded in it, and around the circumference are tiny intake holes to suck in smoke and odors. The hood has a 450-cfm blower with a ductless configuration (as with an air purifier, air is filtered and recirculated instead of being blown outside). To brighten the work area, the hood includes four halogen lights hidden within the stainless steel bar above the ventilation circle. A discreet backlit touch screen interface is mounted alongside the hood. The price for the Zephyr Om is about $3,900.
