Italian kitchen extractor manufacturer Falmec has received three Good Design awards – run by the Chicago Athanaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design – for its Spazio, Quantum and Alba models, which the company presented at Eurocucina 2018.

Spazio, pictured left, part of Falmec’s Circle.Tech collection, won in the Kitchen/Appliances category. The product is designed as an “island structure” with glass shelves, hooks, USB ports and electrical sockets, as well as a holder to support a tablet or book. It can also be equipped with a “small indoor garden for the cultivation of aromatic herbs” featuring light that stimulates photosynthesis.

The new Quantum system – which also won in the Kitchen/Appliances category – “combines the functions of suction and cooking all in one body”, Falmec said. The induction hob’s central suction unit is equipped with flaps that open automatically during operation.

Lastly, the Alba hood, pictured right, received a Good Design award in the Lighting category. The glass frame is illuminated by an LED system that runs through the perimeter of the hood when in use, and is equipped with perimeter extraction.

In November last year, Falmec’s Sintesi combined induction hob and extraction system won a German Design Award for 2019 within the Excellent Product Design category. The product also won four European Product Design awards earlier in the year.
