HAUTE TECH

Identity - - DESIGN FORMULA -

Heat­ing things up, high-tech ad­vances are mak­ing life eas­ier – and more invit­ing – for kitchen am­a­teurs.

Also tak­ing style to new heights is the new cooker hood from Miele, Aura 3.0, which is de­signed to be used above a cook­ing is­land. For the first time a Miele cooker hood has a com­pletely round shape, which makes a vis­ual im­pact that’s just as el­e­gant as it is sur­pris­ing, the 70-cm di­am­e­ter canopy in bril­liant white con­vey­ing the im­pres­sion of a shal­low dome.

The all-round dimmable LED am­bi­ent light­ing pro­vides an at­mo­spheric glow – com­ple­ment­ing the LED hob light­ing, that places hob ac­tiv­i­ties in ex­actly the right level of light.

As a re­cir­cu­la­tion cooker hood, the Aura 3.0 is also best-suited to highly in­su­lated build­ings, in which clean air is re­cir­cu­lated back into the room. First, grease par­ti­cles are re­moved by a ten-layer metal fil­ter, af­ter which the odour mol­e­cules are ab­sorbed by the Longlife AirClean fil­ter. The metal fil­ters can be eas­ily cleaned in the dish­washer as their stain­less steel outer lay­ers are per­ma­nently pro­tected from dis­coloura­tion. The hood can even be con­trolled by the Miele@mo­bile app via smart­phone or tablet.

To make cook­ing a breeze, Bosch’s new in­duc­tion hobs with in­te­grated hoods fea­ture a hob and cooker hood per­fectly com­bined in a sin­gle ap­pli­ance. In these new mod­els, the hood is per­fectly in­te­grated into the hob, mak­ing it in­vis­i­ble. This ar­range­ment also cre­ates fur­ther space be­neath the hob for pots and pans, so they are al­ways within reach, and makes it pos­si­ble to ex­tract steam and food smells im­me­di­ately. The in­te­grated ven­ti­la­tion mod­ule re­quires only min­i­mal man­ual clean­ing, and all parts of the cooker hood can be re­moved from the hob and washed in a dish­washer. The hobs can be in­stalled any­where in a kitchen: on a kitchen is­land or un­der­neath a win­dow.

Gagge­nau also brought a va­ri­ety of top-tier pro­fes­sional grade in­no­va­tions to Salone.

Awarded the cov­eted gold award in the 2018 iF De­sign Awards, the newly launched Vario cool­ing 400 se­ries in­cludes a fully in­te­grated, built-in mod­u­lar range of re­frig­er­a­tors, freez­ers, fridge-freez­ers and wine cli­mate cab­i­nets which can be part­nered to meet an ar­ray of in­te­rior needs.

An ex­panse of han­dle-less doors with in­di­vid­ual fur­ni­ture fronts, and stain­less steel or glass doors for wine cli­mate cab­i­nets, presents a state­ment in any pri­vate kitchen. The door opens to re­veal a com­plete stain­less steel in­te­rior and dark an­thracite an­odised alu­minium el­e­ments. Im­per­cep­ti­ble clear glass shelv­ing and solid alu­minium door racks are fur­ther com­ple­mented by a stun­ning at­mo­spheric glow from the warm white, glare-free LED lights.

Push to open the han­dle-less door and the mech­a­nism will open the por­tal for you! Even the door’s ice and wa­ter dis­penser an­tic­i­pates your needs and au­to­mat­i­cally ac­ti­vates the light and touch keys as you ap­proach, thanks to its in­ge­nious prox­im­ity sen­sor.

Per­haps lit­er­ally, the high­light of Salone’s tech in­no­va­tions was Gagge­nau’s world-first back­light­ing con­cept for the Vario 400 se­ries dish­washer – a world-first. The in­te­rior of the dish­washer is illuminated in­stantly, greatly en­hanc­ing both its over­all aes­thetic and the user ex­pe­ri­ence. The new de­sign uses six LED pan­els placed on the back wall that light up at the same time as the two ex­ist­ing LED lights at the top front of the ap­pli­ance, per­fectly il­lu­mi­nat­ing the en­tire in­te­rior from every an­gle.

The Vario 400 se­ries cook­tops will al­low you to pre­pare even com­pli­cated gas­tro­nomic dishes with con­fi­dence. Thanks to the pre­cise fin­ish­ing of stain­less steel that’s just 3 mm thick, it is pos­si­ble to achieve per­fect align­ment with the com­bi­na­tion of mod­u­lar cook­tops and ven­ti­la­tion sys­tems: in­duc­tion, gas, elec­tric hot plates, steam­ers, Tep­pa­nyaki and fry­ers can all be eas­ily com­bined with a tele­scopic top or ta­ble ven­ti­la­tion unit to cre­ate even the most ex­ten­sive con­fig­u­ra­tions.
