The biggest name in vacuums now makes… fans? The Dyson Air Multiplier Fan was revealed today to a confused, intrigued and well received audience (in that order). With it’s signature in high design and state-of-the-art technology, Dyson has aimed to reinvent the table top fan. The Air Multiplier is a blade-less design that pumps up to 119 gallons of air per second in a smooth, steady flow.
The Dyson Air Multiplier works by drawing air into its base and forcing it up into a “loop amplifier” where it is accelerated by a jet. When the air exits the loop amplifier, it actually pulls air from its rear side, forcing it forward– and amplifying it 15 times. The result is fanning technology without the uneven airflow of chopping blades. That constant flow of air means steady cooling without those papers on your desk intermittently taking flight.
The design itself is true to Dyson. It is smooth, sleek, even a bit iconic. At first glance, we couldn’t help but think of the classic ankh symbol from Egyptian heiroglyphics. While it may appear a bit alien in more conservative interiors, it’ll fit brilliantly into your more progressive home or office. We can’t wait to try one for ourselves… [dyson via dezeen]
