– Dama, Materia and Oceano E.ion models have been awarded with the illustrious U.S. prize –
Good Design Award was established in 1950 by Edgar Kaufmann Jr – founder and superintendent of the Chicago Museum of Modern Art– and is one of the most prestigious international awards, given to the most innovative products of the year. The criteria used to decide the winners are: aesthetics, materials, construction, concept, functionality, utility and sustainability. This award is given by the Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design and is promoted by the European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies.
Among all the 2017 winners, there are also Falmec Dama, Materia and Oceano E.ion hoods. They will be permanently exhibited in the Chicago Athenaeum design collection. Dama and Materia, two Circle.Tech models, put together extraction and filtration, maximizing efficiency in a chassis with reduced dimensions. This grants new and original design solutions. Dama and Materia are not only hoods but also decor and lighting elements with integrated LED systems. Circle.Tech technology uses the space horizontally rather then vertically. In this sense the outflowing air goes through a filtering body (which encases the motor) spreading out in an
uniform way. The round shape ensures the greatest filtering surface and excellent performances.
Oceano, with its geometric lines and an outstanding minimalism, is part of the E.ion collection which uses controlled bipolar ionization, removing the 95% of bad odours. The whole Oceano structure is a filtering unit, thus granting a much wider suction area. Good Design Award is an important prize for Falmec, which has always joined an elegant design with innovative technologies.
