The idea of the fan originated as a response to our society’s wasteful consumer habits, where objects are often bought and quickly discarded because of their lack of meaning and emotional connection with their owners.

I wanted to design an object that was iconic and timeless, that people would want to keep for a long time

By completely transforming the typical scale and shape, the fan that is often seen as merely utilitarian object becomes a statement element that stands out in the space.
