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

Another striking addition to the company's 2010 collection, the deceptively simple design of the RAVENNA kitchen hood melds the highest-grade materials, award-winning design, and innovative technologies to create an outstanding kitchen ventilation product. Its elegant shape is formed by mirror-polished stainless steel with black satin sides, creating a visual statement that combines opposites into perfect balance.

Online PR News – 17-June-2010 – – The RAVENNA hood is equipped with a powerful 940-CFM blower motor which provides suction performance at a fraction of the noise compared to traditional range hoods. Thanks to innovative NRS® Noise Reduction System, developed under the guidance of the Aerospace Engineering Department of the University of Padua, the RAVENNA kitchen hood offers a choice of 4 speeds including Boost Mode at full 940 CFM power, with the noise level significantly reduced thanks to optimized channel surfaces and blower motor design. Unlike traditional kitchen hoods, whose noise level can reach 59 dB(A) or higher (comparable to the side of a busy highway), the RAVENNA's sound level barely breaks 44 dB(A), which is comparable to a quiet conversation.

Lighting is provided by twin 1W LED modules, which consume up to 25 times less energy than traditional halogen lights. In addition, dual long-life fluorescent lights cast a soft backlight against the wall, creating the illusion that the range hood is floating in space, as well as showcasing any custom backsplash or tilework. The energy-efficient lights, the optimized blower motor design, and the use of sustainable materials underscore Futuro Futuro's commitment to environmental protection.

The RAVENNA 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
