Nuage – The First Perfectly Integrated Hood

Elica’s Nuage is the first cooking hood that’s designed to be naturally integrated into the architecture of the kitchen, in continuity with the wall.

A stylish and discrete household appliance with sinuous, almost organic shapes, the Nuage is a highly customizable offering for the design hunter’s kitchen, with the option to cover the external panel with plasterboard, tiles or paint, meaning any surface will suit.

Nuage’s conception lies in wanting to integrate cooker hood and architecture, making it possible for you, or your designer, to integrate your own emotions with both product and design.

Outside of aesthetics, the Nuage is a filtering hood with the option to become an aspiration hood with back aspiration installation, and is equipped with an intuitive rotary switch and high performance & efficiency motor. What this means is just peak hood performance for your kitchen, inside a stylish and clean unit, which, with lighting by LED strips, gives an efficient and natural light effect.

Coming in two versions, with plasterboard panels, or paintable iron, the Nuage is also customizable according to your needs. The Nuage hoods are available in Australia through the design lovers at Residentia Group.
