Tilt Desk Fan.
I was given a brief to design a motorised hand held fan that incouperates aesthetics and ergonomics.
The Tilt Desk fan is a design that takes aesthetic inspiration from designers such as Dieter Rams and is a user friendly comfortable design. The fan operates on the desk by tilting it back by 30 degrees and allowing it to tilt up to you, the fan automatically recognises the tilt and turns on. When the fan is held in your hand the fan turns on as it will turn on if it is at any angle other than horizontal to the ground.
With this simple interface and the ease of use the Tilt Desk Fan is a great contemporary design addition to have on your desk.
