The GDA 2023 was opened in 1953 by the German Design Council that headlines these highly-regarded awards. Thanks to the German Parliament, supported by German industry, it rewards communication and brand management in the field of Design. The German Design Award is granted to products for specific criteria - such as concept, high quality of design, innovation and accessibility – and is considered by a jury of influential figures from academia, interior, graphic and industrial design, architecture and the media.
Thanks to exclusive Multi-Air technology, Shelf incorporates a very thin structure of only 10 cm in thickness, equipped with a removable vane to increase smoke suction capacity. The innovative technology retains impressive performance but with an extremely reduced volume. This element with hood function can be enriched with additional modules to create a versatile wall hanging furniture system: the 120 cm suction module can be attached to the right or left of other shelves with a width of either 60 or 90 cm. By responding to multiple stylistic contexts, usage needs, and installation types, this new concept transforms its fundamental environmentally friendly function into a modular and multifunctional structure that is fully integrated into the kitchen.
Its underside can be equipped with an integrated LED strip with a dynamic light that illuminates the worktop along the entire length of the Shelf. Optional accessories, such as ladles, spices, phones, tablets and other tools to organise your kitchen, can also be housed here. Made of black painted steel with a black satin-finished aluminium profile that enhances the pure and elegant design, the Shelf is a wining addition to Falmec’s 2023 collection.
