Faber: collaboration with the architect Carlo Colombo


At Eurocucina-FTK, Faber will present Glow, the hood created in collaboration with the architect Carlo Colombo. Elegant design and functionality distinguish this refined appliance. Glow is a chandelier hood in black nickel color, equipped with “up & down” technology that allows to move the hood closer to the hob when necessary. “Glow interprets the evolution of the kitchen, which is becoming increasingly part of the living room – Carlo Colombo comments -. I imagined the hood as a real piece of furniture, an elegant and sophisticated object, characterized by sober and sinuous lines able to enhance and fit harmoniously in any kitchen. The name Glow emphasizes its dual characteristic: no longer just a technological object, but a luminous sculpture in perfect balance between light and functionality”. The collaboration between Faber and Carlo Colombo marks the birth of a model made of style and technology: Glow integrates with the Faber hobs, where the integrated controls allow to manage all the hood functions. “In its top-of-the-range extraction version – explains the company – there is the perfect example to present Airlane, the new technology by Faber”. Applied to the new F-Light models (suspended hoods in extraction mode), it allows the air extraction, eliminating any pipe. The air is contained in a flow pushed by the hood motor and it is aspirated from above. The secret is a second motor, positioned on the ceiling, which sucks the air captured by the hood, expelling it outside. Thanks to extensive studies in the field of fluid dynamics, Faber was able to concentrate the air flow coming out of the hood in an “invisible duct”: the air is re-caught from a second motor placed in the false ceiling.
