designer caps tailor-made solutions by architects

Basic for extracting cooking fumes from food and for removing unpleasant odors extractor hood it is no longer a simple household appliance, but is becoming more and more common element of decoration. Kitchens designed as pleasant environments and to live all day long they leave a little to improvisation: come now splash guard most coveted for modern compositions without wall elements, all details are subject to methodological study and often for experimentation. That designer caps they are realizations unique and tailor-made, able to take on the role of protagonists in space. Along with the technical proposals from specialized companies, which focus on steel with a professional look, which disappears completely under the cabinet or in the worktop, the architects’ ideas complement the essential bold aesthetic function. Pure geometric shapes, contrasting materials, bright shades and creative reinterpretations of classic styles are just some of the solutions you can get inspiration from.

Colored designer caps they bring joy and move even the most minimal kitchen compositions. In fact, in the most successful projects, they are transformed into brushstrokes of pure joy, which occupy the color palette of the home or are decisively detached from it. There are no limits to the imagination, the only limitation is the choice of hood model in between aspirantwith vents running out into the open, e.g. filtration, which cleans the air through filters and puts it back into circulation. And if the chimney hole is not tight, there is no problem: the connecting pipe can be left exposed for an industrial effect, as the study couple did. Civil in terraced house where he lives, in Brooklyn. The dark blue kitchen area stands leaning against a white-painted brick wall, on which the red crescent of the cooker hood emerges, and where the systems run freely. Clear red also for the proposed Dries Otten. In his color block kitchen, the hood has a large space, in the middle of a background reminiscent of a romantic sunset, replacing the splash screen in the area behind the bonfires. Ton-sur-ton the car mixes. Sky blue, on the other hand, is the hood installed in the renovated historic villa inhabited by Aldo Parisotto. Clad with sheet metal, the technical body disappears and leaves room for a color point reminiscent of that of furniture.


Kitchens with an island are spectacular in themselves. Open in the living room or in a dedicated space, they often use the free-standing counter as a space for cooking. It is in this situation that the designer hood can make the difference emphasize with decision the most technical area. The eclectic study Puntofilipinsk suggests a timeless brass-colored finish to address the suspended aspiration of one apartment in Andalusia. Wipe more the team off CaSA study which transforms the hood into a ribbed pillar, inspired by classical architecture, hanging from the ceiling with a misplaced effect that seems to come out of a surrealistic painting.


Gold and iridescent, the jewel caps these are “important” solutions that require a spruce up courage but that never disappoint. There are several solutions to achieve the rich and soft effect of gold. You can choose a shiny metallic foil like Emil Dervish, which illuminates the entire living space with its reflectors. Or for a masonry lined with ceramic tiles, such as Atelierzero for a house built in one former office.


The most daring experiments are those that completely redesign the appearance of the hoods and transform them into abstract decor elements. Simple geometric shapes are the ones that seem to work best, just like the cone of Atelier Espaço p2 or the pyramid chosen by Fala Atelier. In both cases, the devices were installed on the wall and then hidden inside the structure. The technical soul is there, but it is not seen, the whole composition is refined and the wow effect guaranteed. Formal purity is also the path taken by Francesca Neri Antonello – FNA concept in the kitchen of one house a stone’s throw from the sea and Sestri Levante. In this project, the cap is inserted into a dark parallelepiped that reflects the finish of the bases.
