A fragrant idea!

The Aura 4.0 Ambient recir­cu­la­tion hood from Miele is a feast for the eyes and the nose alike.

It hangs over the kitchen island like a designer light. The Aura 4.0 Ambient imme­di­ately draws the eye thanks to its unusual design and it is deli­cately hung from the kitchen ceiling by four thin wire cables which also supply power to the hood. When the Aura is acti­vated, it extends its wings and shows off the illu­mi­nated surface to best effect. Customers can choose from indi­vidual color shades in order to create the perfect lighting atmos­phere, espe­cially in open living concepts. There are plenty of things about the hood that will wow you – it has been designed with your comfort in mind. You might think all this would be extra­or­di­nary enough – but no! The Aura 4.0 Ambient is more than just easy on the eye.

All in one product

“In our product range, the Aura 4.0 Ambient combines an extremely striking design with tech­nical inno­va­tions,” states Mareike Kanowski, product manager for recir­cu­la­tion hoods from Miele, the world’s leading supplier of premium house­hold appli­ances. At our specialist factory in Arns­berg, this hood combines an abun­dance of inno­va­tions – some of which have already been patented.” What is it that makes it such a unique product in the market, though?

Air that smells

Say goodbye to unpleasant kitchen odors and hello to elegant fragrances – the Aura 4.0 doesn’t just absorb cooking smells, but also releases subtle aromas into the air once you have finished cooking and enjoying your food. No other hood can do that! With the Ambi­ent­Fra­grance func­tion, customers can choose from three different aromas – created by perfumers from Provence. An axial compact fan from ebm-papst distrib­utes the fragrances from the capsules to the surround­ings.

According to their wishes, both cook and guest can feel as though they have been trans­ported to another world: a summer garden with orange and jasmine, a French bakery filled with the aroma of coffee and pastries, or a fresh breeze of mint and euca­lyptus. The Fresh­plexTM tech­nology also neutral­izes unwanted cooking smells. The contents of the capsules can provide wonderful scents for up to 150 hours. Like any other hood func­tion, times and inter­vals can be indi­vid­u­ally controlled using the smart tech­nology of the Miele@mobile app.

A great feel for the perfect surround­ings

The Aura 4.0 not only ensures a pleasant indoor atmos­phere when it comes to aroma – it also reli­ably absorbs mois­ture in addi­tion to grease and odors. “The Humid­i­ty­Bal­ance dehu­mid­i­fi­ca­tion func­tion is our most impor­tant inno­va­tion from a tech­nical perspec­tive. There is currently no system on the market that is compa­rable when it comes to recir­cu­la­tion hoods,” states Mareike Kanowski. It’s an inge­nious idea: a special filter absorbs the moist air. An intel­li­gent sensor then measures the temper­a­ture and air humidity and deter­mines the perfect time to release the mois­ture back into the room – little by little so that the surrounding air can absorb it again. Including using a fan.

For this purpose, the sensor acti­vates another product from ebm-papst at appro­priate inter­vals: a back­ward-curved centrifugal fan. “ebm-papst has been a highly esteemed partner of ours for more than 25 years,” states Mareike Kanowski. “This is why we decided to use blowers from ebm-papst’s product range for our most inno­v­a­tive recir­cu­la­tion hood in the premium segment.” The centrifugal fan ensures a suffi­ciently high air perfor­mance with ultra-quiet noise levels and low energy consump­tion. This is partic­u­larly impor­tant when it comes to the Aura 4.0 Ambient, as the island hood is located in an open home envi­ron­ment. A complete concept in terms of visual appear­ance and tech­nology which made a real impact at the IFA 2019 – and had the sweet smell of success as well!
