Entry Description: Bio is the new Elica hood that maintains traditional lines while being, at the same time, innovative. Satin white paired with natural wood, allows for great versatility, making it go together with any space. This hood becomes a one of a kind element of design, blending together nature with top Elica home technology. Designed to be either wall mounted or island, Bio is modular and can be adapted thanks to its shelves, which make it completely able to blend in with the rest of the kitchen layout. The feature Kelvin Changing degrees, allows you to regulate the tone of white of the lighting, thus creating the best environment according to your taste and needs. It is operated by a touch control on transparent elements, designed to ensure comfort. Equipped with tablet/smartphone support and a USB charger, it also includes sensor technology, which allows for the best automatic aspiration of vapors.
