About Zephyr:
At Zephyr, we’re driven by the idea that everything in the home is an opportunity for personal expression. That’s why we don’t see kitchen hoods the way most people do. We have elevated the hood to its rightful place by partnering with designers and introducing technology that challenges the industry with energy efficient, quiet, and powerful range hoods.

The Arc Collection is designed by Robert Brunner and features simple geometry with classic materials to create a bold statement in kitchen design. Robert’s passion for fusing lifestyle with innovation is evident in his work as designer of the Nook by Barnes and Noble, the Beats headset in collaboration with Dr. Dre and the SmartTools by Williams Sonoma.

Fu-Tung Cheng is the designer of the Cheng Collection, which features timeless designs, customizable materials and mixed metallics. Fu-Tung is also a best-selling author, and speaker, internationally known for his sophisticated custom home design and innovative use of materials in the home.
Our DCBL Suppression System™ technology reaffirms our commitment to bringing groundbreaking technology and innovation to the kitchen ventilation industry. With 77% less noise, 77% more energy efficiency and 30% more power, our cutting edge technology delivers a range hood experience with built-in peace of mind.

2015 is an exciting year for Zephyr as we celebrate the 10-year partnership with our design partner, Fu-Tung Cheng and introduce the newest product in the Cheng Collection: Limited Edition Okeanito in Rose Gold and Black Mirror Stainless. In addition, we’re launching three new hoods in our iconic Arc Collection, a combination of new ventilation styles and technology. We invite you to discover Zephyr at
