Being a cook with ongoing kitchen design fantasies, I’m always on the lookout for solutions that are wonderful to look at and completely functional. I LOVE this stove hood by Architects Lhoas & Lhoas that looks like a modern sculpture; I imagine its lovely asymmetry subtly shifting the way I feel – and cook – in the kitchen. Since many range hoods have to be custom-made by a metal fabricator, it doesn’t seem like it would be such a stretch, or that expensive, to make one with more unusual lines, like this one. It would be beautiful in plain aluminum or steel, which could probably be powder-coated in a color, OR could easily be covered in wood to make painting it easy (changing colors as your mood changes).
Here’s another gorgeous hood we found on Lhoas & Lhoas site:
