Entry Description: Interstellar is a suspended Elica hood that is the ideal size for island kitchen installation. Its remarkable personality makes this hood the focal piece of any space. Interstellar mixes mirrored polished steel and 1150 pieces of glass, making the product particularly precious, full of light. The wraparound comforting lighting, is in fact, created by LED strips that regulate brightness, and by a led ring, which is able to perfectly direct light onto the cook top. A sensor that is installed in the hood, automatically detects 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. The aesthetic part can be easily disassembled in three parts and washed in the dishwasher. Controlled by a remote control, Interstellar comes in two catalog versions: transparent and black glass.
