For the second year running, Falmec, the Italian appliance manufacturer, has won a prestigious German Design Award. The company, which last year received an award for Sintesi, its integrated cooking system, won the Excellent Product Design category with its unique hood, Spazio.
Falmec’s winning product, a steel island hood with smoked glass shelves for storing dishes and glasses, won over the jury composed of leading personalities in the fields of architecture, interior design and the international press. The product was praised for its multiple ‘smart’ functions and system of electrical sockets and USB ports. It also features ‘tablet’ support, is made of steel that comes directly from the ‘Inox Valley’ in Venice, and has a special area for the cultivation of aromatic plants with a dedicated light and two trays.
