A’Design Awards Honor Essence

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.
