The objective here was for the feature wall to appear as uncluttered as possible and its opening to capture viewer’s curiosity. Use of the island extractor suspended from the ceiling helped us to achieve this and with its sculptural shape it became design statement in its own right.
In this project we were faced with the problem of sloping ceiling, therefore it was not possible to use conventional ceiling extractor. Downdraft extractor is sophisticated piece of equipment and it is not only for gadget lovers. It enabled us to put hob on the island, making cooking more sociable experience. Installed to the kitchen island, it has great advantages. When not in use it fits flat into the worktop and when raised it works as splash back and safe barrier at the same time.
In the case below you can see that the extremely low ceiling and narrow space created a problem when we were choosing extractor for this project. We opted for integrated version with open wall units on either side. This gave us additional storage that client desperately needed without loosing the sense of spaciousness and openness.
