Miele’s award-winning new Lumen ventilation hood lights up Dwell on Design show in Los Angeles
Sleek new Miele designer wall/island hood sets the mood in 196,000 colors
“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.
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.
