Sycamore Nature Inspired Ceiling Fan – better, nicer, greener
June 25, 2007 § 2 Comments
From 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.
