SAN FRANCISCO, June 27, 2018 – Zephyr, the company that has transformed the kitchen through design, discovery and care, is the recipient of the 2018 Excellence in Design (EID) and 30 Most Innovative Products Awards. Zephyr is recognized for its Lux Island in-ceiling range hood, and Anzio, Ravenna, and Savona Black Stainless Steel range hoods.
The appliance DESIGN Excellence in Design Awards is a prestigious award program that celebrates products that are well engineered and have practical functions. An independent panel of distinguished judges evaluated the entries based on creativity, ease of use, and visual appeal.
The judges honored Zephyr’s Lux Island for its integrated design, Perimeter Aspiration, tri-level LED lights, and capacitive touch controls. The EID panel agreed that Lux “is the ideal range hood for homeowners that want an unobtrusive view of the kitchen, or do not have the space for a wall/island hood.”
The seventh-annual 30 Most Innovative Products awards are held by Meredith Corporation and the Luxury Home Design Group. The winning Anzio, Ravenna, and Savona Black Stainless Steel hoods were selected by the editorial team for their ability to combine smart function, seamless style, and cutting-edge technology. “Consumers are eager to explore new technologies and design concepts, and the kitchen and bath industry has answered the call,” says Group Editor, Luxury Home Design, Samantha Hart. “Today’s top products bring together the best in tech and style.” Zephyr’s award-winning hoods are a sleek alternative to stainless and are manufactured with a military-grade, built-in layer of protection with an anti-smudge coating for easy cleaning.
