The winning design

New awards for Elica, a world leader in the production of hoods for domestic use. The Edith hood, designed by Fabrizio Crisà, has been awarded the iF Product Design Award 2015, the annual prize awarded by iF International Forum Design of Hannover, that even this year has selected, out of nearly 5,000 candidate projects, the best international projects which have distinguished themselves for their design.
It is not the first time that Elica is awarded this prestigious prize: already in 2013 it had received the same recognition for the Sweet and Tiffany hoods, proving the attention that the company has always given to the contents of design, quality, innovation and technology.
“Of all the products designed for Elica - Fabrizio Crisà, Design Center Manager, emphasizes - Édith probably represents in the best way the thrust of the company towards an all-round design, intended as a meeting point of vision, technology and creativity. The perfect symbol of synthesis between the past and the future of a company that for over 40 years has been a leader in the treatment of air in home environments”.

Édith belongs to the New Evolution collection, the line of high performance chandelier-hoods launched worldwide by Elica in 2005. It is a model of multi-functional hood that can guarantee quality of air and light to the right atmosphere of each environment: the use of perimeter aspiration leaves space for a large ceiling lamp that illuminates uniformly the hob. The elegant profile is enhanced by small details, like the thin steel ring that gives the product a design with more character. Édith is available finished in painted metal or in polished steel, in a dual mode of installation, wall or suspended, thanks to especially designed accessories. The colour variants of the product are: Édith Classic (white), Édith Rock (black and brown), Édith Jazz (beige and green), Édith Heavy metal (stainless steel). It is possible to customize the product choosing the kit cover accessories available in three different finishes (coral, tea, aquamarine).

All winning products will participate in an exhibition in agenda from 8th October 2015 to 7th February 2016 in Hamburg.
