Sycamore Nature Inspired Ceiling Fan – better, nicer, greener

sycamore seedFrom time to time we learn to do the best things the hard way, applying the saying that when nothing works and you tried everything to beat nature take a look over the shoulder and see the apple fall perhaps you’ll be the next newton;) .

Now really, I was pretty amazed by another nature-inspired better product than best engineers were able to design. Modeled on the wing-like shape of a seed pod from a Sycamore tree, the Sycamore Ceiling Fan allows the same airflow as a conventional flat-winged fan, but at much lower speeds; this results in lower energy consumption, less noise, and great modern looks to boot.

It took Danny Gasser and Michael Hort over a year to achieve their aim of making a beautiful, quiet, efficient fan blade which matched the airflow of conventional fans, while operating at lower speed.

Get it from Beacon Lighting for around $700… or try a DIY for your home.
