Sphera from the BEST Sorpresa Generation II Collection Looks Like Hanging Light, Functions as Range Hood

June 21, 2013

HARTFORD, Wis. – One of four range hoods in the BEST® Sorpresa® Generation II Collection, Sphera offers homeowners a fully functional range hood disguised as an elegant sculpture effortlessly suspended from above. With the appearance of a bold, glossy pendant light, Sphera, offered in white or black, is sure to become a central feature of any kitchen’s design.

Sorpresa, which means “surprise” in Italian, takes on shapes and styles that are designed to immediately become the focal point of any kitchen, while still delivering the world-class ventilation technology and function expected from a BEST product.

“Designers and homeowners will be especially impressed with Sphera’s luxurious, rich finish,” says Brian Wellnitz marketing manager, kitchen ventilation, BEST. “The hood’s saturated polish and sculptural design give it a striking appearance in bold, classic colors.”

Sphera functions as a recirculation hood and meets the need for a contemporarily designed range hood that can accompany a small gas, electric or induction cooktop. Since Sphera does not require ducting, it is ideal for retrofit applications. For cooktops beyond 30 inches, homeowners can install two Sphera hoods side by side for optimal functionality — and twice the design.

“BEST is proud to continue offering professionals and homeowners the option of high-end design in the kitchen,” says Wellnitz, “and we are confident these designs will impress our loyal customers.”

To help customers envision how Sphera 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.
