Maris Modular cooker hood by Franke: perfect balance between beauty and practicality

In the kitchen, hoods have become an indispensable element, essential for eliminating odours and ensuring optimal ventilation, but also capable of adding style and personality to the environment. 

Franke Home Solutions presents Maris Modular, a hood that fits into any kitchen space offering design and functionality.


A hood with a modular design suitable for both large and small kitchens 

Maris Modular is a hood that fits perfectly in both large and small spaces, giving the option of installing only the central 60 cm module - in the case of limited space - or adding shelves on one or both sides to provide additional space in larger kitchens.


Comfortable and flexible, the Maris Modular hood, with its black matt metal finish and smoked glass shelves, contributes to an elegant and contemporary style. 


A versatile and customised solution 

Maris Modular is a versatile and customised solution: the hood can be installed in both suction and filtering mode, guaranteeing a ventilation power of 620 m3/h at maximum speed and an impressive 720 m3/h in intensive mode. 

In energy class A, it guarantees low energy consumption and good value for money, encouraging a more environmentally conscious lifestyle. In addition to its outstanding performance, the Maris Modular cooker hood also provides an intuitive experience: adjustable via its convenient flush buttons, it offers an easy-to-use interface.

Optimum lighting and extra space 

Thanks to the flush-mounted LED bar with dimmer function, Maris Modular is able to meet every lighting need, whether for a perfectly lit worktop or to create a relaxing atmosphere during convivial moments. 

Silvia Gamberoni, Head of Global Category Management Hoods at Franke Home Solutions, commented: "We are extremely proud of Maris Modular, a modern and flexible looking hood that fits into any kitchen, regardless of size or style. With its sleek design, the extra space offered by its shelves and the highest standards of ventilation, Maris Modular has all the makings of a favourite addition to any home kitchen and meets the needs of all consumers."
