Entry Description: Summilux is the new Elica chandelier hood in white glass, with a frosted glass finish. The combination of mirrored polished stainless steel and glossy glass creates the perfect balance of emotion and technology, making it the ideal product for installation in various styles of kitchens, be it modern or classic. The LED strips allowing you to adjust the brightness of the ambient lighting and the LED ring, which is directed towards the cook top, make lighting become the main focal point of the kitchen. Easily adjustable with a handy remote control and enhanced by high performance easily removable odor filters, Summilux is equipped with sensors, which are able to detect the type of cooking being carried out and the quantity of vapors emitted, thus calibrating the level of aspiration needed in the best way possible. Summilux also comes in a mirror polished copper version that gives the appliance elegance and character.
