iF concept design award

'Wind Circle' is an innovative electric fan, which overturns the traditional conception of what a fan is. It is a wind driver designed on the principle of fluidics. The hollow motor drives the mixed-flow centrifugal fan to blow out the air in a cylindrical shape through the centre of the circle. In this way the air in a room can be circulated more widely. The wind circle can swing to the left and right around the centre of the base. The simple and neat hollow shape fits in with its surroundings better than a traditional fan.
