You might say that we’re a bit obsessed with kitchen design on Modenus. So it will come as no surprise to anyone that we have a soft spot for kitchen products that make us tap our heads with our ladles and say “wow.” Zephyr’s products fall into the ‘wow’ category in a big way.
Zephyr has recently announced the return of a design contest they ran last year called ‘Inspire My Kitchen Design Contest’ (IMKDC.) The contest brings together culinary aficionados, and awards homeowners and professional designers prizes for incorporating a Zephyr range hood into their kitchen.
Everyone is welcome to submit and to vote – just click on the link above. Prizes are given out just for voting! Zephyr’s world-renowned judging panel (artist Fu-Tung Cheng, industrial designer Robert Brunner, and celebrity chef Tom Hurley) will review the submissions. Winners will be announced on January 16, 2012. So if you are in the beginning stages of a kitchen re-do — register and submit!!
Winners of the homeowner category will be awarded a Dream Dinner grand prize consisting of a gourmet dinner for them and 16 of their closest friends, tailored to their tastes by Chef Hurley and his award-winning team. The prize will also include a hands-on cooking class by Chef Hurley the night before the dinner.
Winners of the designer category will be awarded generous cash prizes: $2,500 for third place, $5,000 for the runner-up and a $10,000 grand prize will be awarded to the kitchen designer who best uses a Zephyr range hood. Based on last year’s turnout of incredibly talented designers, Zephyr is expecting the 2011 designer category to not only reveal innovative and groundbreaking kitchen designs, but also be ultra-competitive.
Well? What are you waiting for? Enter, vote, win – and put those winning kitchen designs up on Modenus’ Before & After section while you’re at it! And if you have room at the dinner for 16 – please – think of us here at Modenus – we travel for food and design!
