Bet you didn’t know that a ventilation hood could be so gobsmackingly gorgeous, eh? Neither did I! At the kitchen and bath show a few years ago I was suitably awed by Elica‘s Om (that awesome green one at the very bottom), which looks more like some DJ’s minimalist turntable than a device for sucking up heat and cooking smells. But somehow the rest of the company’s amazingly clever designs escaped me. Most divine: these genius ones that look like simply sleek pendant lights. Why has no one thought of this before?

More below, and download the catalog for other cool designs and great technical information, too. –Jen Renzi
