Our Story

Clean cooking is at the heart of AirHood's vision of making it accessible to everyone, everywhere, and at any time. AirHood makes it possible for all kitchen spaces whether big or small, in need of ventilation to enjoy a fresh cooking experience without installation.

Maxime Augay


AirHood® was designed by the French designer Maxime Augay when he was in college. Like many great innovations, this came from a personal need because Maxime found his own extractor hood at home difficult to clean – and frankly, not up to his own aesthetic tastes. After having won the imm Cologne 2019’s “Pure Talent Contest – Living Kitchen Selection” with his design concept, he decided to bring the AirHood to reality. He has partnered up with Smart Product Concepts (SPC), a veteran with over 20 years of experience in kitchen appliances manufacturing, to ensure the concept is brought to life successfully. So why did we launch this product on Kickstarter then?
