Retractable Steel Hood for Contemporary Kitchens by Samuel Codegoni [Video]
Designer Samuel Codegoni envisioned Paero, an unconventional hood for elegant kitchens. Minimalism and Japanese elegance inspire furoshiki, the refined technique of wrapping objects in silk cloths and fabrics to conceal, protect and at the same time enhance the contents of the package. By using the same concept, the designer transformed a sheet of stainless steel, used for wire cloth, into a telescopic hood.
Using Faber’s up&down technology, the product gently moves close to the burners. The cylinders which make up the appliance are operated by simple remote control. They slide into each other, closing or opening the telescope, like a cloth folded and refolded on each occasion to create the most appropriate garment – or silk-wrapped package. Designed in cooperation between Codegoni and Faber’s R&D division, the unusual kitchen hood is currently available for purchase, at € 2300. Have a look at the video to see how it works!
