NikolaTesla extractor hobs have revolutionized how we see the kitchen. Since its launch onto the market, by placing the extraction core within the hob itself, this line has aimed at improving the entire cooking experience, providing a single product able to meet aesthetic, multi-features and integration needs: continuous research in current trends and market demands has resulted in another brand-new product this year.
Air treatment and topnotch results in cooking, are at the basis of the creative process behind the entire NikolaTesla product line. A winning approach, being that today’s homes have become increasingly more fluid and flexible between the kitchen and living area: a space free of unpleasant odors thus becomes as essential as creating a cooking space – often in the heart of the living area – which favors entertaining and shared moments of togetherness.
“Finding the right balance between aesthetics and function represents the main cornerstone on which our product designs are based on. Clean lines with painstaking attention to detail, in pursuit of a ‘formal synthesis’ able to enhance all the elements involved: cooking as the basic feature and air as the common thread, as invisible as it is precious for the perfect operation of the entire system.” Says Fabrizio Crisà, Design Center Director of Elica and creator of the entire NikolaTesla line.
Balance that characterizes the whole line, finding new ways of expression in its latest evolution: NikolaTesla Unplugged. A story of innovation retraced, step by step, through its most distinctive products.
Salone del Mobile 2022 - Elica presents NikolaTesla UnpluggedToday, six years from the launch of its first NikolaTesla, Elica marks yet another turning point in aesthetics, functionality and usage of extractor hobs with Unplugged.
Conceived to create a natural and immediate relationship with the product, Unplugged is controlled through fixed click-release knobs with analog touch & feel, providing quick and intuitive access to its features. All elements are incorporated into a bold-lined appearance, developed to intelligently separate the cooking zone from the control area, which is protected from both damage and unwanted spills.
The large knobs give NikolaTesla Unplugged a professional look and their texture allows for perfect grip. The cooking and extraction areas are distinguished by the linear central glass flap, which conceals the extraction area, activating it only when necessary, with a simple touch.
Crisà adds: “Designing the NikolaTesla line is a fascinating challenge that I have been taking on for almost 10 years. A creative journey made up of continuous research, that puts into place technological innovations and increasingly more advanced features. Keeping ahead of market trends and having a forward-looking vision, is at the root of the entire evolution of the product line, just like our newest addition: NikolaTesla Unplugged. Its name withholds the whole concept that has given life to such a product. Unplugged, that is, a more natural and instinctive interaction: a relationship that evokes the world of analog, while protecting all the distinctive features of touch control digital products. NikolaTesla Unplugged represents a new and evolved step taken by Elica in the world of cooking, a journey which I am certain, is only at the beginning."
Refined design solutions that cater to top performance in cooking and extraction. NikolaTesla Unplugged is for anyone who loves to experiment in the kitchen and wants amazing results with little effort, both in daily life and on special occasions: the joy of creating healthy and delicious dishes for the whole family.
Thanks to its automatic cooking features (Melting, Warming and Simmering), it is no longer necessary to stir delicate ingredients so they don’t burn onto the bottom of the pot and it is easier to guarantee both proper heat levels for slow cooking, like for risotto or soups, and to prevent overflowing of boiling water for more vivacious cooking.
NikolaTesla Unplugged helps the user to cook faster by bringing water to a boil 30% quicker than a traditional hob, while in the same way food may be fried in half the time, making it crispier and more flavorful.
Thanks to the Autocapture feature, you can focus just on what you are cooking and not on unpleasant odors, as NikolaTesla Unplugged automatically sets the most suitable air extraction power, by gradually adjusting and lowering it to remove odors left behind after cooking
