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.
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.
