Fire It Up: 10 Ultramodern Vent Hoods

Generally speaking, there’s nothing sexy about vent hoods.  Today’s roundup, though, might change that just a smidge.  Led by a brand named Elica, of which four vent hood designs made it into today’s series, there’s an aesthetic movement happening among kitchen appliance designers. The bulky, overwhelming monstrosities of yesteryear are being replaced by sleek discs, curved sculptural plates and even glimmering chandeliers all serving the same purpose: to eliminate excess heat and steam from a kitchen during meal preparation.  Style and functionality most definitely go hand-in-hand where these new culinary helpers are concerned.
