Zephyr Ventilation offered the Modenus team an exciting opportunity to join them for a few memorable days in San Francisco and Napa Valley over the fall for their Zephyr Blogger Retreat 2015. Yes, we said Napa Valley. Beyond what would be a few days of connecting with fellow bloggers and design influencers, exploring unique and innovative design, enjoying spectacular meals and wine, what we brought back was more than we ever expected. We returned with a wealth of knowledge on a product we all regularly use from a company that creates their designs with integrity, style and advanced technology on a whole new level in a very grounded and humble way.

Aside from four days of what felt like a vacation, we had the opportunity to visit the Zephyr Ventilation showroom in the design district of San Francisco and got to know the Zephyr Ventilation team and their products. We were pleasantly surprised to find that Zephyr’s products were made with the latest technology using minimal power while remaining a sexy centerpiece of the kitchen that is affordable. Zephyr offers a variety of styles in ventilation hoods to accommodate any style of kitchen from modern to traditional and even transitional. We were fortunate enough to be there for the unveiling of their latest ventilation systems including the Lux Island Range Hood of the Arc Collection, the Luce Island and Siena Pro Island, both part of the Essentials Collection.
The Lux Island Range Hood is stunning and seamless with its mount in-ceiling design creating a discrete integrated design. This design is the perfect addition to the ever popular open kitchen floor plan or for those who aren’t a fan of a traditional more bulky ventilation hood. As if the sleek design wasn’t enough, Zephyr steps it up with advanced technology.”Lux is equipped with Perimeter Aspiration, a technique that moves airflow away from the central area of the hood and evenly distributes it through narrow openings around the perimeter of the hood.This ventilation method increases air velocity and improves the capture of cooking contaminates,” according to Zephyr. The element that blew our socks off was the remote control that adjusts ventilation levels and the tri-level LED lights for an easy user experience..
The team at Zephyr also introduced us to the new Luce Island and Siena Pro Island Ventilation Hoods both from the Essentials Collection.. The Luce is sleek in style and now features Icon Touch Controls, fully integrated touch controls that are entirely new to the industry. The stylish hood also is equipped with three color accent LED lights to add a dynamic element to the kitchen. In addition to the Luce, Zephyr has also introduced the Siena Pro Island, a fabulous hood that is a professional-style hood that has high performance and power without breaking the bank.
Truth be told, we could continue on and on about all the varying styles, collections and technology Zephyr Ventilation hoods have to offer but we wanted to bring light to one of their partner designers, Fu-Tung Cheng. We had the honor of listening to a presentation from the versatile designer who spends much of his time creating and building fabulous concrete homes and interiors. He also has designed a stunning line of ventilation hoods in collaboration with Zephyr that are unique in style and powerful in performance. The limited edition Okeanito hood from his Cheng Collection is available in trending metallics and is built with Zephyr’s Bloom™ HD LED lights that have a 25,000-hour life. The fact that the Okeanito comes in rose gold seals the deal for us. Yes, please!
So to answer any question as to why Zephyr Ventilation should be your ventilation hood go to? Team Modenus is always about cheerleading for great design and that is just what Zephyr offers.The Zephyr team is grounded, personable and easy to talk to. Their designs are solid and stylish. The technology is astounding, the power is unwavering and their story is undeniable with the collaboration of unique designers in the industry. Above all, it is a well priced product. Win-win?
