Samuel Codegoni envisioned the Pareo, an unconventional hood for modern kitchens. Minimalism and Japanese elegance inspire furoshiki, the refined technique of wrapping objects in silk cloths and fabrics to conceal, protect and at the same time enhance the contents of the package. The designer applied the same concept by transforming a sheet of stainless steel into a telescopic hood.
The product uses Faber's up&down technology to move close to the burners. The cylinders are operated by simple remote control. They slide into each other, closing or opening the telescope like a cloth folded and refolded. It was designed in cooperation between Codegoni and Faber’s R&D division. The unusual kitchen hood is currently available for purchase at € 2300. Check out the video to see how it works:
