With the Falmec E-ion cooker hoods, there’s more than meets the eye. The range, released in Australia through Abey, cleans as well as sanitizes the air around it.

The renowned Italian brand Falmec has been known as top name in cooker hods for years, and the brand’s new E-ion range will only further this reputation. Through using bipolar controlled ionisation technology, the E-ion goes beyond simply killing an unpleasant odour, also cleaning and sanitizing the air when in use.
This is done through an advanced, re-establishment of the optimum ionic balance in the surrounding living environment. The result is not only a better smelling home, but also a significant benefit to human health. The action produced by the ions is one that neutralises all polluting agents in the air, such as bacteria, viruses, dust mites, pollen, foul odours, cigarette smoke, sanitises and optimises it.
While this could be enough on its own, the design of the Falmec E-Ion range is a story in itself. The innovative and eye catching design does away with exhaust tubes, which eliminates the need for architectural restraint in home planning. This means no more need for masonry works or adaption and solving installation problems.

“I’m interested in the invisibility of the design scripts that are hidden within objects we use every day that channel certain stereotypes,” says Central St Martins course leader Betti Marenko. Looking around there are plenty of design objects embedded with gender stereotypes – from the ubiquitous fail of Bic for Her pens to Nika Zupanc’s “feminine” gold chair for Moooi.
