New Arc Collection Hoods Combine Elegant Design With Powerful Performance
SAN FRANCISCO, March, 2015, — Zephyr Ventilation, the industry leader in ventilation hood design, innovation and technology, today announced the launch of Wave and Incline – the newest hoods in its Arc Collection. The Arc Collection is a line of modern range hoods designed in collaboration with Robert Brunner (former Apple Computer designer and designer of the Amazon Kindle, Beats by Dre Headphones, etc.), and are as much about clean air as they are about clean lines. The Wave and Incline feature a vertical style design and are ideal for homeowners looking for a bold design statement in the kitchen.
An elegant vertical-style hood, Wave features a slim profile that complements kitchen décor styles from transitional to modern. The square-shaped hood resembles more of a kitchen art installation than a range hood with its slight tilt and smooth glass panel in black or white; the perfect hood for homeowners that crave an alternative to stainless steel.
The Wave’s Dual Capture Zones collect contaminates through two entry points (back and front) to improve capture performance and ensure a smoke- and debris-free kitchen. In addition, an industry first, tri-level LED light strip illuminates the cooking surface while creating a clean, warm white glow that is evenly distributed on the cooktop. Features include: Multiple Blower Options (Internal 290, 600 CFM, and Inline/External 1,000 CFM), Wireless Remote Control, 3-Speed Capacitive Touch Controls, Recirculating Option, and Optional Duct Cover, 90 cm. (MSRP: $1,899).
The new Incline adds a touch of chic to your kitchen and is the most economical vertical style hood on the market (MSRP: $1,149). Incline is equipped with Perimeter Aspiration, a technique that moves airflow from the central area and evenly distributes it though narrow openings around the perimeter of the hood. This 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.
Incline also features Dual Filtration, which filters cooking contaminates through two entry points (bottom and front) to improve capture. Its multiple blower options (Internal: 290, 600 CFM and In-line/External 1000 CFM) and industry-first, tri-level LED light strip make Incline both stylish and functional for discerning home chefs. Additional features include: Wireless Remote Control, 3-Speed Capacitive Touch Controls, Recirculation Option, and Optional Duct Cover. Color options: Stainless Steel or Powder Coated White with Stainless Steel, 80 cm.
“Our Arc Collection has challenged traditional ventilation design with its bold shapes, colors and features,” says Luke Siow, Zephyr President. “The Wave and Incline are two exciting new hoods in the collection with a modern twist; vertical style design and Perimeter Aspiration are two features that give homeowners the best in both form and function.”
Designers in town for San Francisco Design Week (June 2nd – 7th, 2015) can preview the Wave and Incline on display at Zephyr’s San Francisco Showroom, located in the heart of the Design District. The Zephyr Showroom is North America’s largest ventilation showroom and features over 6,000 square feet of space with all of Zephyr’s hoods on display.
