ust presented at Eurocucina-FTK, Carlo Colombo has designed a new, innovative kitchen hood for Faber. Simple, elegant and clean. This product completes production for 2018 of one of the best and most successful Italian companies in the field of kitchen hoods and air purification systems.


  • What is it? It is called Glow and it is a suspended kitchen hood equipped with a strip of LEDs that outlines its silhouette; this brings out the simplicity of its shape. Suitable for different kitchen style, whether it’s a modern kitchen or one with a refined, traditional feel.
  • What is special about it? The new circular low power consumption Leds is the main feature. The hood is fitted with "Up & Down" technology and connects to other kitchens hoods by Faber, thanks to integrated settings. The exhaust is fitted on the top part of the hob, Glow comes with top of the line Airlane technology that doesn’t require a ceiling pipe as it relies on the principles of fluid dynamics. The kitchen hood has an “invisible” duct for removing fumes that works in connection with the second engine fitted in the false ceiling.
  • How is it made? Available in black nickel and white, it has a diameter of 695 mm with an air vent of 150 mm. The settings include touch control and LED technology. The grease filters are self-supporting and dishwasher safe. The exhaust has three different settings, plus an intense setting. The maximum exhaust power is equal to 3 metricubi/h
  • Who is it by? It’s by Carlo Colombo. Carlo finished his architecture degree in 1993, yet his career had officially begun a few years earlier in 1991 after meeting with Giulio Capellini for whom he designed the Kyoto bed shown at the 1992 Salone del Mobile. From then on, Carlo’s constant flow of work includes several prestigious collaborations with top brands such as Antonio Lupi, Arflex, Artemide, Cappellini, DePadova, Emu, Flou, Moroso and many others. Besides being both an art director and a designer, Carlo also has worked extensively in the field of marketing, exhibition design and planning. 
  • We have chosen it because. Glow is a striking example of how kitchens have transformed rapidly becoming an integral part of the living room. Glow is a real decorative piece, a light sculpture that combines light with function.
