The Turbine Fan is an level 2 industrial style desktop fan I designed a few years ago. The multi-layer blade takes inspiration from alloy wheels and the way they look when a car/bike is in motion. The frame and blade are made from Aluminum and it is powered by an electric motor - unlike the electromagnetically powered Orbital Fan designed in Level 3. The design is modern, sleek and powerful.
The Orbital Fan is a level 3 redesign of a level 2 project. The latest version takes inspiration from the iMac with its ultra thin and sleek styling. The blades are powered by a set of electromagnets inside the frame. Due to the simplistic style of the fan a touch sensitive panel is located on the base to cut power to the electromagnets. This switches the fan off.
