Zephyr Recognized for Product Innovation and New Technology
SAN FRANCISCO, December 16, 2022 — Zephyr, the company that continues to lead the industry in smart design and clean air, ends 2022 with six prestigious awards. Zephyr was most recently the recipient of three GOOD DESIGN® Awards from the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design. The Lux Connect, Presrv™ Full Size Dual Zone Wine & Beverage Cooler, and Tornado Glo all received a GOOD DESIGN® Award in the ‘Product Design: Kitchen + Appliances’ category for innovative design and groundbreaking technology.
Lux Connect: Lux Connect is a minimalist kitchen range hood with the new Zephyr Connect app technology that discreetly mounts into the ceiling above the cooktop for an unobstructed view. The app connects with Amazon Alexa and Google Home devices for voice activation to control the hood functions. In a category of its own, Lux Connect is equipped with Perimeter Aspiration, which increases air velocity and improves the capture of cooking contaminates.
Presrv™ Full Size Dual Zone Wine & Beverage Cooler: The Presrv Full Size Wine & Beverage Cooler is the perfect combination of wine preservation and beverage storage. It is the most flexible full-size option on the market with two distinct temperature zones for preserving wine on top and cooling beverages on the bottom. PreciseTemp™ temperature control and Active Cooling Technology ensure both zones are at the perfect temperature range and a Vibration Dampening System keeps wine bottles still to preserve flavor and development over time.
Tornado Glo: The Tornado Glo range hood features a LED Perimeter Aspiration System (PAS) Light Panel that adds a touch of glamor to the kitchen. The LED PAS panel increases the airflow velocity around the perimeter of the hood to improve performance, while also serving as the primary lighting. Optional adjustable-depth liners are available to accommodate 30- or 36-inch cabinet widths in a variety of depth configurations. The Tornado Glo also features Airflow Control Technology (ACT™) – an exclusive feature built into specific Zephyr products which can limit the maximum blower CFM to 390 or 290 to meet local code requirements.
“Zephyr has always been at the forefront of innovation and product design, and it’s an honor to be recognized with these prestigious awards,” says Luke Siow, Zephyr President. “The design awards reflect our commitment to range hoods and wine and beverage coolers that are not only functional, but elevate the space with sleek design, competitive features, and smart technology.”
In addition to the GOOD DESIGN® Awards, Zephyr is the recipient of the AD Great Design Award (Mesa Wall), Adex Platinum Award (Mesa Wall), and Architizer A+ Product Award Finalist (Presrv Full Size Dual Zone Wine & Beverage Cooler).
