The new Essence fan by Big Ass Fans has received an A’Design Award.
The awards seek to honor the best designers, architects, engineers, design studios and design-oriented companies worldwide. A prestigious jury composed of academics, professionals and focus group members judge entries based on innovation, technology, design and creativity.
Essence, which received a silver award, is both an essential money-saving machine and a work of art. Ranging from 8 to 14 feet (2.4 to 4.3 meters) in diameter, Essence excels both indoors and out. Essence provides the air movement needed in large air-conditioned spaces such as lobbies, pavilions and music venues, as well as seaside dining and open-air theatres. A single Essence does the work of more than 28 standard ceiling fans at just one-seventh of the operating cost.
