A design student from the University of blade fans. The Ribbon Ceiling Fan recently won an Australian Design Award in the student design category.
Benjamin McMahon has a patent pending for his ribbon-inspired design/invention that not only looks like a fast, free-flowing ribbon, spinning in suspension, when it’s turned on, but his Ribbon Ceiling Fan is actually more efficient than other ceiling fans, perhaps even limiting the need for air conditioning in some environments.
Making use of the geometry of a helical loop, the Ribbon Ceiling Fan’s unique blades are able to focus air in a wider circumference from the fan than current blade fan. Another positive feature of the Ribbon is that it uses standard fixtures for installation, making it much easier to replace a standard fan.
The student design section of the Australian International Design Awards also functions to select the Australian students who qualify for the James Dyson Award, an international design award specifically for next generation designs from students.
McMahon naturally hopes to do well in those awards; however, he plans to begin marketing his design soon, regardless. And he already has an industrial design position in a firm in Australia.
Éolienne (French: ‘wind turbine’) is not a wind turbine, but rather a wind generator. The goal of this project was to completely redesign the pedestal fan. Looking at what the future may hold for cost effective household cooling solutions, and how the User, Environment and Product relationship can be enhanced; whilst inspiring creativity and simplifying interaction.
Nuer is a hypothetical brand developed for this project. The brief for our final exam project of 2014 was to design a free-standing household fan. With considerations for noise, interaction, safety, assembly, storage and aesthetic quality. We also had to develop a brand for our product that would speak to the nature and values of our design direction. I decided to design a fan that would circulate air more effectively throughout the space, whilst simplifying the interaction required by the user and introducing a sculptural aspect to make the product more valuable than a purely functional item.
The parameters in consideration were as follows
The style guide I developed for the Nuer fan was based on precedent from existing sculptural fans, natural aero-dynamics, wind-turbine design, modern manufacture and natural forms.
I used wind dispersal seeds as inspiration for developing an unconventional blade that would churn, rather than chop, the air. I also wanted to create a smooth, sleek and slender form that would communicate aerodynamics. I looked at the shape of a squid, as it has a distinctly curvilinear and unbroken form. The thin tentacles were an inspiration to do thin legs and draw focus to the main mechanism.
Initially I looked at ways to include functions such as height-adjustability and wind-direction. However, as the concept was developed further and I was able to do prototype testing, these aspects fell away as unscary complications and detractions from the simplicity of the form.
After some prototyping I was able to refine the form and move on to the mechanical details of the electronics and assembly.
Further refinement was carried out through CAD. Making sure each component is manufacturable and finalising the assembly process and fasteners.
Using the engineering drawings, I produced the parts to scale and made a working prototype. I had some of the parts grown and others I modelled from foam and wood. For the repetitive parts, I made moulds of the original pattern and cast plastic and foam multiples. I used a reclaimed fan motor to drive the prototype.
Today’s fan takes the same space when it is on and off.
After turning the fan on the maximum – a cage covering a propeller is what we see.
Its form looks way too technical and not friendly to our home place.
The fan can take just a little bit of room when it is off.
Enjoy the variety of propeller shapes with every single level.
Pick a color which fits to your own apartment.
There is no need for a safety cage because the propeller is made out of a soft material.
We use fans only in summer and rest of the time leave them unused. Have a lot of time to spare than time to use a fan. In addition, fans have a problem with their storage volume.
Air Fan worried about how to use this problem. At present, the issue of fine dust is growing. As time goes by, fine dust and the need to clean air are increasing. Indoor air quality is becoming a necessity for many people.
Air cleaning is necessary for all four seasons. What if you could even get air cleaner using a fan?
Air fan is a fan that can hold and remove air filters from the fan and can also function as air cleaner.
When used as a fan, it can be used to remove air filters and it can function as air cleaner by plugging in air filters.
In addition, the fan head can be turned vertically towards the ceiling, making air cleaning more effective.
