Elica and Cristalplant: the hood of the future

19 April 2016
Elica, partner in the eighth edition of the Cristalplant® Design Contest
Elica’s philosophy joins together innovation, research, quality and a wide range of proposals.
These are just some of the reasons that make the Fabriano based company, world leader in the design and production of kitchen hoods., the perfect partner for Nicos International, which has been organizing the “Cristalplant® Design Contest” for seven years in a row. This contest, is intended for talented young people, who shall  come up with, and design original projects, using Cristalplant® as the primary material. This innovative material, is worked through cast molding, leaving maximum freedom of expression for design, thus making the shapes  three-dimensional. 
For the eighth edition, Nicos International has chosen the style and spirit of Elica. The contest, involving both  up-and-coming and well-known  international designers ,  can boast a panel of judges made up of influential figures from the design world, such as Gilda Bojardi, Andrea Castrignano, Arturo Dell’Acqua Bellavitis and Laura Traldi, in addition to company managers such as the President of Elica, Francesco Casoli, the Marketing Director,  Edoardo Pontoni , and Vittorio Pavarin, Marketing and Sales Director Cristalplant®. The jury has examined the projects created  by participants: the winner is Ellen Bernhardt con la sua cappa Sipario realizzata in Cristalplant.
Three other new and innovative Cristalplant hoods, designed by Fabrizio Crisà, will be presented at Eurocucina: Concetto Spaziale, Loop and Empty Sky.
