I’m a Fan

It was the afternoon of one of the most humid days in June when I spotted this beautifully designed appliance. Now, most commercial electric fans out there are often ugly-@ss things that come in black, white, or some weird pastel color. Let’s not include the electric fans of the world that cost an arm and a leg, such as this one. Those guys are in a league of their own, so let us not touch them in this post.

And so, it was a such a pleasant surprise to see this elegant specimen of an electric fan created by young Filipino industrial designer Joseph Rastrullo.

Joseph Rastrullo’s electric fan prototype.

The fan itself is encased in an elegant, metal mesh cage that is more sculpture than appliance. Well, you wouldn’t expect anything less from the Domus-educated Joseph, who has created dozens of furniture and accessory designs and exhibited in Manila FAME and other fairs when he was just in his 20s.

This piece is still in the prototype stage, but if you’re interested, follow him on Instagram or hit them up on the Rastrullo Facebook page.
