HARTFORD, Wis. – An eclipse is an astronomical phenomenon that can often be experienced only once in a lifetime. The Italian-inspired Eclisse (Italian for eclipse) from the BEST® Sorpresa® range hood collection is designed with this phenomenon in mind – a striking design statement that makes the everyday extraordinary.
“Eclisse changes its appearance depending on the angle you look at it, much like how the moon changes appearance in a lunar eclipse,” says Brian Wellnitz, marketing manager, kitchen ventilation, BEST. “From one viewpoint, you see a glossy, visual statement that is actually a chimney hood. From another, the hood is virtually hidden.”
Sorpresa, which means “surprise” in Italian, is a full line of range hoods designed to challenge traditional ideals associated with kitchen décor. Eclisse (pictured left) is made of brushed stainless steel and polished black glass, common materials that are united together in an uncommon and surprising way. You won’t encounter this range hood in just any kitchen.
“Eclisse is exactly what an artistic experience should be – ever-changing and open to interpretation,” continues Wellnitz. “Designers and homeowners will love having an artistic centerpiece that is also a fully functioning and reliable kitchen appliance.”
To help customers envision how Eclisse will fit into a variety of kitchen designs, BEST offers a convenient Sorpresa Visualizer tool, available on BESTsorpresa.com, which enables designers and their clients to mix and match these unique hood designs in a variety of kitchen styles.
