Sculptural Elements

The latest kitchen designs deliver function and grace.

Thanks to the proliferation of open-concept living spaces, everyday kitchen tools are being designed to hide their utilitarian purpose. Italian company Elica's range hoods are a perfect example: they offer venting systems that look more like beautiful light fixtures than a standard issue hood. (This one does double duty as a lamp, too.)

Elica Aria Nuova, Grace. Stainless steel and glass. 20" diam. Available through Coast Wholesale Appliances and A.G. International Inc.
