This Is a Fan deals with the integration of an electric appliance within the domestic landscape. Fans which can be found in every machines of different scales from computers to cars find their function in the habitat thanks to the cage they are covered by, designed according to safety regulations.
Because a protective cage is needed, the cage of This Is a Fan is designed in order to value the beauty of its mechanical elements as well as to allow their assembly. The cage becomes a vitrine and the naked engine and propeller, strapped inside, become alive.
