Futuro Futuro, leading Italian manufacturer of high-end modern kitchen range hoods, expands its portfolio of 200+ designer kitchen hood models with the ELLIPSO model, created by winners of the prestigious 2010 Red Dot Design Award.

Online PR News – 17-June-2010 – – New for 2010, the smoothly organic design of the ELLIPSO series kitchen range hoods by Futuro Futuro attracts attention instantly, with its curved surface showcasing the eternal shine of the highest-grade AISI 304 stainless steel, treated to a fine polish. An offset bottom portion creates an interplay of shapes, while providing space for the innovative Perimeter Suction system. With a mirror-smooth polished steel of the bottom portion and the fine texture of the main body, the ELLIPSO kitchen hood creates a unique design statement, sure to be at home in many contemporary and futuristic kitchen design environments.
Its powerful 940-CFM blower motor provides suction performance with a fraction of the noise compared to traditional range hoods, thanks to the innovative NRS® Noise Reduction System, developed with the guidance of the Aerospace Engineering Department of the University of Padua. Extensive studies of the fluid dynamics inside the range hood and the subsequent optimization of the channel surfaces and blower motor design resulted in a significant reduction of turbulence and noise, lowering the noise level to only 44 dB(A), comparable to a quiet conversation, instead of the typical range hood noise level of 59 dB(A), which can be experienced on a busy highway.
Lighting is provided by eco-friendly long-life fluorescent bulbs, with the frosted tempered-glass cover creating smooth and even illumination across the cooking surface. With energy consumption several times less than even the most efficient halogen lights and much longer bulb lifespan (10 to 15 times greater than traditional incandescent), the innovative lighting system is an example of Futuro Futuro's commitment to protecting the environment.

The ELLIPSO kitchen range hoods are available through Futuro Futuro's exclusive United States distributor. For more information, homeowners and kitchen professionals are invited to visit www.FuturoFuturo.com, call (800) 230-3565 (toll-free), or send E-mail inquiries to futurofuturo@optonline.net
