Zephyr®’s Next Generation Europa Collection with DCBL Suppression System™ has been awarded another big win to add to its mantle — the 2012 GREEN GOOD DESIGN™ Award. The celebrated GREEN GOOD DESIGN™ Award, presented annually by the Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design and The European Centre of Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies, awards those who show excellence in product design across a number of categories.

“We’re elated to have won the GOOD DESIGN™ and GREEN GOOD DESIGN™ awards for Next Generation Europa,” said Arcadio Lainez, director of marketing for Zephyr. "We set out to create the most technologically advanced, quietest and the most energy efficient range hood available. To receive the award that recognizes manufacturer’s efforts to build sustainable products, validates our vision of providing green friendly products to meet the growing demand in these times of increasing eco-awareness. Having the judges at GREEN GOOD DESIGN™ bestow this honor upon us means that they feel the same way and we are thrilled.”
Zephyr’s Next Generation Europa Collection with DCBL Suppression System™ is a complete redesign of the iconic Europa collection, with technology that lifts it far above other range hoods. Each Next Generation range hood is equipped with a direct current brushless motor, Bloom™ HD LED bulbs which last 68 years and never get hot and a sophisticated, onboard computer system. DCBL has transformed the Next Generation Europa range hoods into the quietest (77% less noise), best performing (30% more CFM) and most energy efficient (80% less energy consumption) range hoods on the market today.

About Zephyr®
Since 1997, San Francisco-based Zephyr® has challenged the perception of what ventilation means in kitchen design — cultivating the range hood’s symbiotic relationship with the kitchen, home and homeowner. Far more than an appliance company, Zephyr is an innovator — tapping acclaimed talent such as artistic visionary, Fu-Tung Cheng, and industrial designer, Robert Brunner — to create design-centric, residential range hoods. From inspiration to production, Zephyr brings to market the most innovative products, conceptualized by a stable of design talent that no other company can claim. Zephyr not only reinvents, but more importantly re-imagines the range hood’s central purpose within the kitchen ecosystem, pushing technological boundaries to create exceptional value for their customers. As a direct result, Zephyr is the recipient of several prestigious awards including Consumer Report Buy rating, Consumer Digest Best Buy rating, Chicago Athenaeum’s GOOD DESIGN™, ADEX, and appliance DESIGN’s Excellence in Design Award.
