Franke has introduced the Maris Free hood which features a hand-sculpted, metallic glass panel, so each is unique to the homeowner.
Sitting at the top end of the company’s re-launched cooker hoods collection, it has been designed by award-winning contemporary artist, Dror Benshetrit.
The wave effect is created by hand, making each hood an exclusive design, thus offering consumers a ‘work of art’ for their kitchen wall.
Wall-mounted, it can be fitted in ducted or recirculatory mode and incorporates double vented extraction, where the front panel can be opened for extra ventilation.
And measuring 800mm wide, the hood boasts touch controls, LED lights, and offers three speeds of extraction, plus an intensive setting with a rate of 570 m³/h.
It has an energy efficiency class A rating and is backed by a two-year warranty on working parts.
The Maris Free cooker hood has been designed to pair with the sculptural Maris Free Swivel tap, which was also created by Dror Benshetrit.
Artist, designer and inventor, Benshetrit opened his studio Dror in 2002 in New York, and has since amassed an award-winning portfolio of product, interior, installation and architectural design.
The Dror studio works on projects of every scale that aim to rethink design typologies, promote well-being, and foster the connection between people and nature
