Designed by Michael Anastassiades and manufactured by Grupo Kettal, Superfan is a tri-blade fan whose geometry is simply defined by three angled blades, meeting at the rotating axis.
Michael Anastassiades takes its inspiration from his childhood years in Cyprus, where air conditioning was a luxury and the need for refreshing air was vital.
“There’s always a negotiation between studying what makes an efficient fan and coming up with something that also has a strong design language, ” explains the designer.
“We knew the basics of what makes a good and efficient fan, but at the same time, there was still room for testing because that’s the phase where theory needs to meet practice. Kettal really went hands-on with it; there was extensive testing to find the optimal angle and length of the blade as well as the weight.”
All design decisions are made to maximize performance and improve efficiency: the angle of the blades, the lightness of the aluminum material, and the selection of the motor for accurate speed control and quiet function.
The two fan versions operate with equal efficiency both with and without a pendant, offering the flexibility of use for different ceiling heights.
