HARTFORD, Wis. – In nature, the watering hole is the central gathering place and feeding spot. The kitchen holds the same place in many of today’s homes. Dune from the BEST® Sorpresa® Italian-inspired range hood collection is a chimney range hood that takes its design cues from nature. Why not spice up the home’s watering hole with an exciting new shape?
Sorpresa means “surprise” in Italian and reflects the astonishment many will feel when they learn these unexpected shapes and unique designs are also fully-functioning range hoods.
“The designer was inspired by the natural curves and shapes that occur in nature when he designed Dune,” says Brian Wellnitz, marketing manager, kitchen ventilation, BEST. “The style is popular in the European market and we know its elegant, curved design will be a hit in the U.S. market.”
Like all thirteen hoods in the Sorpresa Collection, Dune is meant to enhance the cooking experience with a high style aesthetic the kitchen designer or homeowner won’t come across every day. With its brushed steel exterior and gently curved base that is accented with reflective glass, the look is stunning yet the real style of Dune comes from its simplicity.
“Sorpresa has a hood for any aesthetic,” continues Wellnitz. “Dune’s real artistry comes from the fact that it is made from simple lines and shapes, but still manages to make a dramatic statement.”
To help customers envision how Dune 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.
