Ventillation Hood


Sept. 21, 2010 - PRLog -- Princeton, New Jersey, June 2010 – Miele positions ventilation in a powerful new light with the debut of its stylish Lumen (DA 6290) ventilation hood. The 90cm (35.4”) hood offers a unique, multi-colored LED light band that’s artfully integrated into the elegant edge of a slimline stainless steel canopy. Standard, preset colors are white, green, red and blue but the truly eye-catching and unique feature is a setting that gently transitions through all 196,000 colors in the spectrum.  The color changeover can be set at 1 minute or 15 minute intervals and also can be frozen to illuminate a favorite selection. This first-of-a-kind ventilation hood for Miele made its international debut in April at the Eurocucina in Milan, Italy and has already earned the 2010 iF Design Award for its outstanding aesthetics. The DA 6290 will make its American debut at the Dwell on Design show in Los Angeles, June 25-27.

“Miele ventilation hoods are handcrafted works of art and modern engineering all rolled into one,” states Paul McCormack, Director of Public Relations for Miele. “Lumen, which means light in Latin, is sculpted by artisans at Miele’s Arnsberg, German production facility, and is a monument to modern design ingenuity. From its truly stunning LED and halogen lighting systems to its gently rounded front edges formed from top grade stainless steel, it adorns the kitchen while performing its extraction function effectively and quietly.”

Form and Function in Perfect Harmony
Consumers will be pleased to discover Miele’s design innovations including: front-mounted controls, halogen dimmer lights and 10-ply dishwasher-safe metal filters to safely extract steam/smoke, grease and fat vapors before they can enter ducting. The DA 6290 Lumen hood (available for island and wall mounting) moves up to 625 CPM and is available in over 200 custom RAL colors. Additional features include: 4 fan speeds, easy-to-use controls, delayed shutdown (for either 5 or 15 minutes) and programmable timers that indicate when it’s time to wash the dishwasher-safe filters.

German Engineering
Every Miele ventilation hood offers excellent air extraction, optimizing a careful balance between air removal and energy efficiency. The advanced blower system, quality tested for 20 years of uninterrupted use, builds longevity right into the design. A special sound dampening acoustic package works in conjunction with the latest motor technology to ensure performance is not compromised. Miele-made electronics ensure easy operation and a high standard of quality.

The Miele DA 6290 Lumen ventilation hood will be available in fall 2010.  Retail price, TBD.
